The Big Yin - 12.5 miles from Balerno to Leith
The Wee Yin - 7 miles from the Water of Leith Visitor Centre to Leith.
The walk follows the Water of Leith and provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the sunshine (hopefully) and the peaceful surroundings of the water. The event raises vital money for the Hospice, helping us to provide care and support for patients and their families.
On this picturesque route through the heart of Edinburgh you take in some of the city’s best-loved sites including Colinton Village and Dell, the Union Canal, Saughton Winter Gardens, Murrayfield Stadium, the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art, Dean Village, Stockbridge, and Leith.
On the day you receive your event t-shirt, route map, and refreshments to keep your energy up along the walk. We also have some entertaining puzzles and games for children to complete along the route to keep them entertained. We have tea, coffee and cake at the finish line in Leith waiting for you - well deserved after your walk! For our four-legged friends, there are dog bowls and snacks to keep those tails wagging!
As 2017 is our 40th anniversary year, we want to get more people than ever before to take part in A Walk To Remember - so please join us and bring all of your friends and family. Dogs on leads are welcome too. You receive a fundraising kit, a t-shirt, refreshments and a medal. We ask that each adult aims to raise at least £50 and each child at least £25 for this event.
