Walk the Line - Still Time to Sign Up!

There is still time to sign up for the annual Walk the Line event which takes place on Saturday 30 September 2017.

Pick your distance

Participants can choose to walk three, five or eight miles on the walk which takes in some of Midlothian’s most stunning scenery along the historic walkway between Penicuik and Eskbank.

Entry fee and registration

The entry fee is £3 per walker (including children and dogs). Registration, for those doing the five or eight mile distances, opens on 30 September 10:45am at Valleyfield Pond car park in Penicuik. The walk will start at 11:15am. For those doing the three mile walk, registration opens at 12 noon at Hawthornden Cemetery Road in Rosewell, joining the other walkers at 12:30pm.

The registration process is to confirm final numbers on the day but all participants will still need to complete an entry form in advance. Entry forms are available at libraries and leisure centres and also on the council website. 


All walkers taking part will receive a soup and a roll, donated by Morrisons at Rosewell before continuing on to the finish line at Edinburgh College Midlothian Campus in Eskbank where refreshments and information stalls will be waiting.

Children and dogs

All children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs can enter the walk but must be kept on a short lead at all times.

Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing.


The event is not a race or charity event but if individuals or groups wish to use it as a fundraising opportunity then they are welcome to do so.

This event is supported by volunteers from Midlothian Council's Ageing Well initiative and Morrisons supermarket staff.
