A kilt run is where all participants wear kilts! The race typically draws a large field of 2,000+ runners with some people setting some very fast times!

The first kilt run held was in June of 2010. There were 1,089 finishers...breaking the old record of 250, and setting a new OFFICIAL Guinness World Record.

The 5 Miler and Warrior race both start and finish at main start line "castle" (Town Hall on Gore street.

The idea to hold a kilt run in Perth was borne out of an idea to help Perth, Scotland, celebrate their 800th Anniversary. Happy Birthday Perth, Scotland!! Canada's 8km Perth Kilt Run represents Scotland's 800 years of existence.
