There is a little over two months to go until the Tartan Army Children's Charity Kilt Walk 2011 and there are already 230 people signed up, but as yet not many teams.

Teams of 5-10 walkers can nominate their local charity or a cause close to their heart to receive 50% of their sponsorship.

Last year over £16k was donated in this way to charities like CHAS, Childline, Juvenile Diabetes, Hopscotch, Dyslexia Action, Rosslyn School and many others.

TACC are hoping to reach 400 walkers again, so if you're thinking about it....sign up today

Some of those already taking part;

CHAS families 
Rev Jim Meighan, Chaplain at CHAS will be leading a team of 30 parents, brothers and sisters of children being cared for by CHAS.

With 10% of the Kiltwalk proceeds being pledged to CHAS, the families want to take part to show their support and to do their bit.

There are many inspirational children cared for by CHAS, and their families are equally inspiring. It'll be a tough challenge but they're all looking forward to a great day.

HMS Neptune 
HMS Neptune fieldgun crew based at the Clyde are taking part and hope to bring along their actual gun (cannon)!

Led by Scotland supporter Alfie Cummings, the crew are keen followers of TACC

Ollie the Otter 
Leading the walk from Hampden Park will be this 6ft furry friend, mascot of the Loch Lomond Aquarium.

TACC are trying to persuade Ollie to do the whole 26 miles.....

Robert the Bruce 
Strathleven Artisans have kindly offered to organise a pit stop at Renton.

Refreshments will be served by Robert the Bruce and other folk in medieval garb!

They will also "lead the charge" from Hampden Park in the morning!
