You're invited!

Come along to the Kelpies Canter on Saturday 16 September 2023. This is a chance for you to bring friends and family for a fun-filled 5km sponsored walk for Christian Aid.

Registration opens at The Helix Park in Falkirk at 10am and the walk begins at 10.30am-12.30pm. From there, you will walk around the Kelpies and learn more about the Helix Park (maps will be available). Toilets will also be available at the Visitor’s Centre along the route.

Walkers are encouraged to bring their own drinks and refreshments. We encourage you to try to car share where possible and use the postcode FK2 7ZT to get to the Helix Park.

If possible, please use the free carpark on the left as you enter; the larger carpark nearer the Kelpies charges for a 3 hour stay. Alternatively, you can take a bus to Falkirk Stadium, and from Falkirk Town Centre, walk to the park. Please ensure you have signed out at the Great Lawn by 12.30pm.

Please make sure you are physically fit enough to participate. Christian Aid cannot be held responsible for accidents, injury or loss of property that may occur during the event. While all care has been taken to make the route safe participants need to be responsible for their own health and safety on the walk and must ensure they have the correct footwear, clothing and provisions with them.
