A world record breaking run in a kilt?
If you've ever asked yourself 'How many kilts does it take to win a world record?' then here's an event that'll really blow your bagpipes!

You've heard of the Colour Run and the Neon Run, but here's something a little more peculiar - The Kilt Run! Yes, you read right. Running. In kilts. But not just any run - a Guinness World Record most people running in kilts run!

These guys are ready for the Perth Kilt Run, are you?


The record Kilt Run has previously rallied up kilt enthusiasts from Perth, Canada and Perth, UK. So now it's time for Perth, Australia to rock out with their...kilts out, and show them what we've got!

You can take our lives, but you can never take our bagpipes!


All it will take is 2000 participants to knight Perth, Australia the World Record holder in the Guinness Book of Records for the most people running in kilts. I think we can do better than that. Get involved and let's do this thing!

The inaugural Kilt Run will take place in Armadale on Saturday 16 November. Starting at 8.00am at Armadale Arena, participants will run 5km around the suburb, finishing at Memorial Park.

Don't you just love a man in a kilt?


Head to the website for more information, to register and for the ever important kilt specifications to count towards the world record attempt.

Highland Gathering
Stick around after the run for a wee (or not so wee) Highland Gathering from 11.00am-7.00pm. With Scottish food, market stalls, Highland dancing, a medieval fair, a Strong Man competition and lots of other activities for the kids to enjoy.

Kilts and sneakers totally go right?


Wrap yourself in tartan, paint yourself like Braveheart or don the fluffy head of a Highland coo (that's cow in Scottish speak) and let's smash this record out of the literal park!
