Sign up now!

Walk day and night and experience stunning views, dark pathways, moonlit canals and shadowy tunnels in this unforgettable adventure.

You’ll pass numerous landmarks and sites along the route, including Kelvingrove Museum and Park, locks on the Forth and Clyde canal, the Falkirk Wheel and Linlithgow Palace before arriving in Scotland’s capital.

Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, but it’s the money you raise that powers our life saving research, so we ask our heart trekkers to set themselves a target of at least £250 for the day and night treks and £400 for the full trek.

The Glasgow to Edinburgh Trek is the only one run by a charity, for a charity, so all your fundraising goes directly to the British Heart Foundation.
