13 Mile Walk

Take part in a full day’s walk through the spectacular Scottish landscape and raise vital funds to help people do more than survive – help them really live!

Sponsorship: We ask entrants to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland. You pay £10 towards this target when you register, leaving just £90 to raise. For our part, we will provide all the support you need to help you meet and beat your fundraising goal.

Accessibility: The 13-mile walk involves a small flight of steps and is therefore not wheelchair accessible. We ask that all participants are confident in completing the 13-mile route within a 6 hour time limit including breaks.

Age restrictions: We recommend that participants are aged 13 or over on the day of the event, however younger walkers can take part at the discretion of their parents. All children (under 5) and young people (aged 5-17) must be accompanied on all routes by a responsible adult aged 18 or over. A maximum of 4 young people can be accompanied by any one adult on this route.

Why it matters

Whether you’re living with one of our conditions and are setting yourself an inspiring personal challenge, are taking part in memory of a loved one or just want to enjoy a great walk with all the family, the Loch Leven Walkathon is for you!

By stepping up and walking with us at the Loch Leven Walkathon, you’ll be helping people across Scotland get the support they desperately need to live their lives to the full.

The money you raise through sponsorship will change the lives of the 1 in 5 people living with chest, heart and stroke conditions and Long Covid across Scotland.


Just ask Nancy

“Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland were there for me and helped me find my way back to the person I was before the stroke.”

Nancy and her husband Kevin have taken part in the Loch Leven Walkathon before as they wanted to give back after Nancy was supported by our Community Support team following a stroke.

After supporting her husband Kevin to recover from a life-changing stroke, little did Nancy think she would have to fight her own battle just three years later.

“Stroke took away my voice and my love of reading and writing. I could never have imagined suddenly losing the ability to read or write. And when it happened to me, I felt so lost.

“When I got home from hospital, I didn’t know where to turn. I couldn’t speak properly, and my biggest fear was that I would never be able to get the words out again.

“Then I got a call from Hazel at Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland. That call was a lifeline.

“I joined Hazel’s online support group and she introduced me to a volunteer called Sam who has been amazing.
“Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland were there for me and helped me find my way back to the person I was before the stroke.”
