Glengarry Highland Games holds virtual Kilt Run

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.

Participants were asked to run their own course on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, and then send photos/videos into the Games committee.

“Put your kilt and/or your GHG t-shirt and show your Glengarry spirit wherever you may be!”

Promotion for Kilt Run 2020 virtual edition

The Games next year are scheduled for July 30-31, hopefully in-person, in Maxville.
