The 10th Anniversary of Perth's World Record Kilt Run!

  

     Important things to note:

     1. August 17:       We have moved to a new month...a miraculous turn of events, following a declared cancellation.   Carpe Diem!  

     2. New Course:    This may be the best one yet! Six different crossings of the Tay River, Historic sites, and a wee taste of the Highlands! Come run again - for the first time!

     3. NEW Cap Limit 3,670:  In April 2019, we just received confirmation that our 2016 Perth Kilt Run has set the new official Guinness World Record! That new world record now stands at 3,670 - lots of room now...thanks for signing up...and tell your friends the party is on!

     4. Kilt Orders:  Sorry but we are not able to provide an option to order when you register this year.     We do provide information below, where you may find a kilt on your own - if needed. (The least expensive (starting at $24usd, & $16 youth) for individual orders we have found, is Click Here - Cheap Kilt Option .) Good luck

     5. Freedom Fest:     Freedom! The chilling cry of Wallace on the battlefield click here for a refresher!  Perth Kilt Run is now part of the 1st Freedom Fest - check it out: Click here - Freedom Fest music   Freedom Fest music lineup currently includes the Contemporary Christian  2019 Juno nominee: (Warren Flandez - from Yellowknife), 2018 Juno Winner (The Color - from Winnipeg), 2016 Juno Winner (Dan Bremnes - currently from Nashville), 2013 Juno (Colin Bernard), and other very talented groups!

You  MUST wear an approved kilt.   

Basic kilt requirements are:

1) Pleated back

2) Apron front

IMPORTANT:

 Sorry we are not able to provide a "registration kilt option" this year. 

                             However...


 *If you had one from the past races - you are all set!

 *If you need to find one on your own - here are some good suggestions:


1. The Scottish and Irish Store

               Michael and his Scottish and Irish Store, have been a good friend to the Perth Kilt Run over the years. A store visit is always fun, and hopefully there is a kilt just for you.

2. Stillwater Kilts

  We have used Stillwater to fill last minute shortages on our main import order in the past - they have a great selection of low cost kilts, and we have found their timely service very good.
Online kilt orders: Stillwater Kilts
