The MoonWalk Scotland

Celebrating 10 fantastic years

Over the past 10 years almost 100 thousand Walkers have MoonWalked their way around glorious Edinburgh raising over £18 million... and Walk the Walk has invested  millions back into Scotland to help improve life for those living with cancer now. The past 10 years have been busy... we have worked with NHS Lothian to fund the renovation of the breast ward, mammography unit and built a new operating theatre at the Western General in Edinburgh.

We have worked closely with Maggie’s and granted millions of pounds to support the building of a new centre in Lanark, fund a centre for them at Gartnavel in Glasgow, and a centre in Forth Valley, which is about to be built. We feel very proud that Walk the Walk money has helped Maggie’s to provide their invaluable service to every area of Scotland, so that all cancer patients are within a 20 mile radius of a Maggie’s.

And if that wasn’t enough we have also placed Scalp Cooling equipment in hospitals from as far north as Stornaway to the borders in the south. These wonderful machines are giving cancer patients the choice of successfully helping them to keep their hair whilst undergoing chemotherapy. Whilst it is not a life saving treatment, the impact for many of being able to keep their hair has a very positive effect on healing, recovery and the day to day impact of living with cancer.

We have plenty to celebrate, so were having a party!... The MoonWalk Scotland 2015 - June 13th - Inverleith Park, Edinburgh. Join us for The Mad Hatter's Midnight Tea Party

Something for every ability

There’s a distance for every ability, and this year we really want to get young people Walking the Walk so 10 year olds and up can enter the quarter marathon!

Half and Full Moon Marathon 13.1 and 26.2 miles:
The classic Half and Full Marathon, not only is there the challenge of the distance but doing it overnight adds that extra bite! Nothing compares with the excitement of taking on this challenge! Enter now

Over The Moon Back to Back Marathon 52.4 miles:
For those that want to Walk the next level, join this special and unique Team of MoonWalkers. With limited places our intrepid walkers have 14 hours to complete the distance... is this the one for you? Enter now or find out more about this unique challenge

New Moon 6.55 miles:
This is a fantastic distance for anybody that either can't or doesn’t want to commit to a longer distance... and especially good for our younger Walkers to join (you have to be 10 or over on the event day). Starting with all the other MoonWalkers you can enjoy all the excitement and fun of The MoonWalk and then watch movies and eat popcorn in the main tent whilst you wait for others to cross the Finish Line! Enter now

This year's theme is a Mad Hatter's Midnight Tea Party!

What happened in 2014

As a walker Edinburgh was magic! The volunteers were brilliant, dedicated and motivating – thanks to everyone of you, we can not do it without you. Edinburgh people are also inspiring with their support.

We are back in the Highlands – we had the most fantastic weekend – thanks to all the organisers and volunteers who made this such a perfect Moonwalk .This was our 4th marathon this year and was up there with the best ever, and between us we have probably done over 20 marathons. Thank you everyone !!!

The night was brilliant, the volunteers were amazing, the weather perfect and my walking buddies great company. Exhausted now. Will I be back next year – too right. I may be a great grandma but there is life in me yet.
