The Virtual Culloden Run

Saturday 25th October

Registration is closed.

Run for Scotland

Get your running shoes on for the last run of this year’s Scottish running calendar, the Virtual Culloden Run!
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the usual Culloden Run can’t take place this year. But in true Scottish spirit, we’re rallying together to make sure you don’t miss out on this iconic run to round off the year.

Join our clan and battle through your own virtual version of this much-loved historic run which celebrates the best of Scotland’s scenery and history. Make your Virtual Culloden Run as Scottish as possible by joining in our photo competition and snapping a photo of what Scotland means to you.

Registration is closed.

Taking part is simple…

  • Sign up now to receive your exclusive event pack. This includes everything you need to get started, including a tshirt, fundraising pack and racing number.
  • On the 25th October, set out on your virtual run. Opt for the classic Culloden distances of 10k or 17.46k, or choose your favourite date from Scottish history. See some of our suggestions below!
  • Snap a photo which captures what Scotland means to you. This could be a stunning shot of Scottish scenery, a historical landmark near you or even a selfie featuring your post-run refreshments of Irn Bru and Tunnock’s Teacakes!
  • Enter the photo competition. Send in your best Scottish photos to be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize from our friends at the National Trust for Scotland which includes a VIP Culloden Experience for two.

You’ll be helping people like Mike

2020 is a year that will go down in history – but not for the right reasons. This year has been difficult for so many people across Scotland because of the coronavirus pandemic. People who are vulnerable and isolated. People like Mike.

Mike, age 66 from Bonnyrigg, was terrified after he had a stroke. Each day, he was worried sick that he might not wake up in the morning.
Although his physical recovery was progressing well, Mike felt like he was struggling to cope. Then he got in touch with our stroke nurse Tom.

“What I now know is that I was suffering with tremendous anxiety”, says Mike. “I was panicked and unhappy, with so many negative thoughts and so much stress.”

Tom supported Mike to get the help he desperately needed, including sessions with a psychologist. Mike learned how to manage his anxieties and he felt like a weight had been lifted off his shoulders.

“It’s amazing to think how far I’ve come with the help of Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.”

“I was being a typical man and thinking that I should deal with things by myself. Sharing was a sign of weakness, you know? But I was a mess and bottling everything up was making things so much worse.

“Asking for help was one of the best things I have ever done. And it’s amazing to think how far I’ve come with the help of Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.

“I’m so lucky, and grateful that Tom was there for me – when I really needed someone to reach out to.”

But because of coronavirus, money for our essential services is running out. At a time when we’re losing £500,000 of income a month, we have seen demand for our services more than double.

Please, help us be there for more people like Mike by raising as much money as you can at the Virtual Culloden Run.

Sign up today and our fundraising team will be on hand to help you raise your minimum sponsorship of £50 – and beyond!

Thank you for your support.
