virtual WHW fundraising

 
This year the event will raise funds for ‘Play to Change’, a charity suggested by Katrina, Jo, Emma, Laura and Hollie Kynaston. Play for Change is an International Sport for Development Charity, which has the goal of enhancing life opportunities for under-privileged children by using the powerful values of sport https://www.playforchange.org
We believe that raising funds for this charity will be a lovely way for us to remember John, and for us all to recognise the impact his life had through his work abroad, his work in sport, and his work with children. There will be an opportunity to donate during the entry process, and we have also set up a fundraising page at https://justgiving.com/fundraising/virtualwhw We have set the entry fee at a low level that covers our costs, and hope you are able to donate generously.

Supporting Play for Change in memory of John Kynaston

Message from Race Director ...

The West Highland Way Race is one of the world’s longest established ultra-marathons, first taking place in 1985 on the long distance trail between Milngavie (just north of Glasgow) and Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.

Since then it has developed a worldwide reputation as one of the ‘classic’ ultra-marathon races, attracting runners to Scotland from all over the world.  Entry is limited to 265 runners each year, with the relatively small size of the field helping to preserve the friendly nature of the event.

2021 will see the 36th running of this great race.  It would be my pleasure to welcome you in the future.
