We will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Kilt Run with a short 1K run/walk at 9:30am  prior to the 8K beginning at 10:30am. Don your best kilt for a day of running and fun in downtown Raleigh. After the run, celebrate at the Raleigh Beer Garden event space with live Irish music, food, and the first beer is free to all runners of the 8K!
