Walking the Walk

Wednesday 24 April, 2019

By Field & Lawn

The Field and Lawn team provides marquee hire services to events all over the UK.

Whether these are music festivals, sporting tournaments or special occasions, the Field and Lawn team loves nothing more than seeing clients and their guests enjoying themselves under one of our marquee structures.

One client we’ve been proud to work with for the past number of years is Kiltwalk. 2018 was a massive success for this annual charity walk, raising £4.5 million for a number of charities. 2019 is set to be even bigger and the event has already raised £1 million before the event has even taken place! And with over 14,000 walkers signed up, we’re sure they’re on track for a record-breaking year.

The Field and Lawn team will be supplying marquees on Sunday 28 April for Kiltwalk Glasgow’s starting destinations, pit stops and finish lines, as well as large entertainment structures that will be located at the end of the walk for all four events. So participants will be able to catch their breath and enjoy some refreshments once they’ve completed their 6, 13 or 26 mile trek.

Organisers of walking, running or any other sporting event can also require a range of options.

Locker areas, decking for spectator seating, or maybe even a bar or two. Field and Lawn can help with all requirements, no matter how big or small and we’ll ensure all bases have been covered. So all your participants need to worry about is the feeling that comes with crossing that finish line.

“Kiltwalk is a charity walk that we’ve been delighted to support since 2013. It is fantastic to see Scottish communities come together to raise money for various different causes, and have fun doing it. Once the Glasgow event has been delivered, focus will then turn towards the remaining events, which take place in Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh. It’s been great to be involved in such a successful story as the event continues to grow and the team is very much looking forward to being a part of such a special event this coming weekend. – Robbie Kent, Project Manager

So on your marks, get set and go to Glasgow this weekend for Kiltwalk!
