In a normal year, one of the events on day two of the Glengarry Highland Games in Maxville is the Kilt Run, which is capped off by runners finishing their route on the track in front of thousands of spectators. Of course, as we all know, 2020 is no normal year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s edition of the Games was cancelled, replaced by a virtual edition.
The Kilt Run, too, was made virtual, with individuals invited to get into the Glengarry Highland Games spirit by completing a run in their own environs.

Thank you to all of our kilt runners who participated in our challenge over the Games weekend! We can see that we have some very dedicated runners out there…no matter what the weather is like. We hope to see you all next year! 🏃♀️🏴🏃♂️ #kiltrun #seeyousoonghg #ghg2020
Participants were asked to run their own course on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, and then send photos/videos into the Games committee.
