WORLD RECORD PERTH KILT RUN
10TH ANNIVERSARY. SATURDAY AUGUST 17TH, 2019, 5 PM
It just wouldn’t be a Kilt Run if things remain the same as years past. Fun things come from change. So keep an eye on the Website, https://raceroster.com/events/2019/21844/10th-perth-kilt-run-2019 for what’s on for the day. This year we are joining up with Freedom Fest to help take a little stress off the Stewart Family who have been instrumental at keeping this run happening.
The idea to hold a kilt run in Perth, Ontario was conceived in October 2009 by Terry Stewart after the Mayor of Perth, Ontario submitted a letter to the Perth Courier requesting town residents to come up with an idea to help Perth, Scotland celebrate their 800th Anniversary. Happy Birthday Perth, Scotland!! Canada’s 8K Perth Kilt Run represents Scotland’s 800 years of existence
The kilt run was organized by a group of volunteers as a “one-time event”. Here we are, now celebrating our 10th anniversary. Mary and Terry are still leading over 100 volunteers to make this run happen.
The Perth Kilt Run continues to be a major attraction, drawing thousands of visitors to the town to race or cheer. To register, visit https://raceroster.com/events/2019/21844/10th-perth-kilt-run-2019
Order your kilt when you register and join in this authentic and ever popular kilted 5 mile / 8 km race that passes through the historic stone streetscapes of Perth and across the spectacular Tay River.
Highlights include a Pipe Band March to the castle starting gate, street bands, cheering stations and so much more!
