Gearing up for the Games

Gearing up for the Games

The 2014 Perth Highland Games will be part of a memorable weekend in the Fair City. The Games will be held on the North Inch on Sunday 10 August. Highlights will include the 1000m Scottish Cycling Championship and a very competitive heavyweight contest that will see elite athletes attempting to putt the shot, throw the hammer and, of course, attempt that most Scottish of sports, tossing the caber. The Pipe Band competition is also shaping up to be an exciting event as bands from Scotland and across the world compete for the top honours.

An ever-popular fixture in the Scottish Highland Games circuit, the Games will provide a whole day’s fun for all the family, with a full programme of athletics, cycling, heavyweight events, solo piping, Highland dancing and pipe band competitions.  The Games field will also feature a wide range of craft and trade stands, catering outlets and a new ‘fairground’ area with rides and activities for the young, and young at heart.

This year’s Games is being organised in partnership with the Perth Kilt Run, making a full weekend of activities to enjoy in the Fair City. The Kilt Run will attempt to break the world record for tartan-clad runners on Saturday 9 August. The Games then opens its gates at 09.00 on Sunday 10 August.
