Home / Band News / world record kilt run…


Wake and District is partnering with the nOg Run Club to break the Guinness Book of World Record for most kilted runners.  The current record is held by The Duke of Richmond and his clan in Perth, Ontario.  This will be a short — 3 block jog as part of the St. Paddy’s Run Green event (a full blown 8k race).

It all happens Saturday, 07 March 2015 at 2:00 pm at Moore Square in Raleigh (NC). There will be an After Party St. Practice Day celebration.The kilt run is open to anyone who has a kilt!  Guinness defines a kilt as a plaid, knee length garment that buckles.  If your kilt does not have a buckle, please wear a belt!!

Runners in kilts will be recorded entering the “holding area” on Person St. at 1pm.  We need to make sure everyone is on video wearing their kilt to submit to Guinness. The kilt run will start at 2pm followed by the 8K at 2 pm.

Sport Kilt is our official kilt sponsor for the 2014 Kilt Run.  Please use code “WRKILTRUN15″ to receive 10% off your kilt. Please remember the kilt needs to be knee-length (or close to it).  Discount code expires on March 10, 2015.

We will be hosting the “after party”! Come early and enjoy live music in Moore Square from 11:30 until 2am.  Music will move into Tir na nOg in the evening. Bands includes: My 3 Kilts, Wake District Pipes and Drums, Nine Times Around, and Albannach
