Perth Kilt Run

Last night I registered for my third race in 2011 by registering for the Perth Kilt Run which takes place in July. Normally I would not rush to register for a smaller race so far ahead of time but this one did sellout last year and the end of the early bird price was coming up soon because they need to order kilts for the race.

As for the race, as I mentioned last year was the inaugural race. It was an attempt to break the Guinness World Record of 250 people running a race in a kilt. They managed to beat the record with 1,210 runners.

The race is a 5 mile (8 km ) loop through the town of Perth which is located about an hour away from Ottawa. For more information you can also go here.

I am not sure what to expect from this race. I have never worn a kilt, let alone run in one so it should be interesting to say the least.
