Looking for a challenge you can conquer? Want to push yourself and feel the rush of achievement as you cross a finish line - and all whilst raising money to tackle loneliness and isolation?

Then join Team Carr Gomm with the iconic and much-loved Kiltwalk and soak up the sights of Edinburgh like you never have before. 

"Kiltwalk 2019 was my first ever challenge event and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It's incredibly well organised, with all the volunteers along the route cheering you on and handing out free refreshments to keep you going. And that buzz when you cross the finish line - knowing that you've pushed yourself and raised hundreds of pounds to support others - is simply priceless."

[Heather, Kilwalk fundraiser]

What is this in aid of?

Team Carr Gomm is seeking to raise £60,000 via a team of at least 100 people, all doing something extraordinary, taking on a challenge and breaking down barriers. Its ultimate goal is to build connections; by encouraging people to take part in the campaign itself, and by raising money to fund activities and projects across Scotland which are bringing people together to tackle loneliness and isolation. 

And what better way to get active and social by bringing your family, friends or colleagues together to take part in this one-day event. Kiltwalk is one of the fastest growing fundraising events in the UK. In 2019, Edinburgh alone saw over 6,000 participants take to the streets and help raise over £1.7 million which helped to benefit an incredible 523 charities.

About the challenge

This year, why not choose Carr Gomm as your charity to support when you walk? The Kilwalk comes in various shapes and sizes, meaning there is something for everyone:

We would suggest a minimum fundraising target of £200 for this event - but the sky is the limit, and it all depends on the scale of challenge you choose!
