Aberdeen Kiltwalk 2018

Scottish Sports Futures (SSF) are offering FREE entry to anyone who walks the Aberdeen Kiltwalk for #TeamSSF on Sunday, 3rd June 2018. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.

The Kiltwalk is a fantastic opportunity to fundraise for SSF. The Tom Hunter Foundation will top up ALL donations by 40%, therefore if you raise £100, we will receive £140!

PLUS, every walker who signs up will be entered into a prize draw to win a car donated by Arnold Clark. There are still 2 more Kiltwalks this year – Dundee (19th August) and Edinburgh (16th September) and a prize draw and car to be won for each location.

 

The Aberdeen Kiltwalk has 3 lengths of walks – 26 miles, 14 miles of 5 miles in and around the city of Aberdeen.

There is a walk for all abilities and the 6 mile walk is suitable for families. Take your kids with you, a picnic and stop along the way to enjoy the atmosphere. You can even take your dog!

Last month more than 10,000 walkers took part in the Glasgow Kiltwalk. There are plenty of pit stops along the way with entertainment and snacks for all.

Here’s what some walkers from last month’s Glasgow Kiltwalk said: 

I have sore legs today but yesterday was such a fantastic day makes the pain worth it lol. It was such a pleasure to be part of it.”  
Jacqueline McAuley

I’m still sore the now , and not going to lie , it was tough on the last ten miles, and after that walk I’m pretty convinced that The Proclaimers have been kidding themselves on that they would walk 500 miles.” Brian Mitchell

If you want to get involved and walk for #TeamSSF, please contact emma@ssf.org.uk for FREE entry and a fundraising pack.

For corporates – SSF and the Kiltwalk can come to your offices and do an activation event to get your staff signed up. It’s a great way to meet CSR targets and to promote a healthy workforce! If interested, please get in touch!

If you do not want to walk but you do want to support us, we are also looking for volunteers to sign up as a Kiltie on the day. For every hour you volunteer, SSF will receive £1.40 for your time and support.

Also, we are looking for volunteers to go and cheer on our walkers along the route. A t-shirt, cheer sticks and flags will be provided.

Thank you for your support.
