Loch Leven Walkathon – Sunday 19th March 2017
Our annual Loch Leven Walkathon returns for 2017 with new routes!
This year the Loch Leven Walkathon has a new home – all routes will start at finish at the beautiful Loch Leven’s Larder and with three walking distances, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Choose your challenge: a 7K walk including an optional Treasure Hunt for families, a 12K route past Kinross House, or the full 13 mile circuit – the equivalent of walking a half marathon around the scenic loch!
- All routes start and finish at Loch Leven’s Larder and are along well-maintained, traffic free footpaths. The walks are signposted, with fantastic views, and there will be event marshals to cheer you along.
- Walkers can sign in and start their walk at any time between 10am and 11.30am (9am and 9.30am for the 13 mile walkers).
- Every walker will receive a t-shirt to wear while walking and a medal at the finish line!
Put a spring in your step this March and join us for a Sunday morning wander…
Read on to help choose between our 7K and 12K routes, or the 13-mile circuit of the Loch…
7K AND 12K WALK
Treasure Hunt – Taking part in the 7K walk? Join in our family Treasure Hunt! Collect clues when you register and follow the trail to win a prize!
Sponsorship: We would love all participants to support the work of Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland by getting sponsored for their walk. Optional sponsor forms and information about raising funds will be included in your registration pack should you wish to raise sponsorship or make a donation on the day.
Accessibility: The 7K and 12K walks are wheelchair and buggy accessible. Families, groups and well-behaved dogs (and owners) are all very welcome! A limited number of electric scooters are available. Please book in advance to reserve one if required.
Age restrictions: Any participant under the age of 5 is defined as a child and anyone aged 5 to 17 is defined as a young person. All children and young people must be accompanied throughout the walk by a responsible adult aged 18 and over. There must be a maximum number of 4 children and/or young people per accompanying adult.
13 MILE WALK
Sponsorship: We ask that 13 mile walkers use this opportunity to raise a minimum of £50 sponsorship for CHSS – we will of course provide support to help you meet and beat your fundraising target! You will be asked to pay £10 towards this sponsorship target when you register, leaving just £40 to raise.
Accessibility: The 13mile walk involves steps to a refreshment stop 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 participants for the 13 mile walk are aged 13 or over on the day of the event.
Anyone aged 13 to 17 must be accompanied throughout the route by a responsible adult aged 18 or over. There must be a maximum number of 4 young people per accompanying adult.
Please note: if you would like to take part in the 13 mile route please register by Thursday 16th March.
