This year’s ‘My Clan Walk’ is hitting the trail and we invite you to clock up the miles to raise funds for Clan Cancer Support!

Light the North, the lighthouse trail, goes live on the streets across Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, Moray, Orkney and Shetland in August 2021 for ten weeks. Light the North will see fifty large lighthouse sculptures, each individually designed and painted by artists, go on public display and we want you to clock up the equivalent miles between the lighthouse sculptures to raise funds for Clan Cancer Support.

Run, walk, cycle or swim to clock up the miles of your chosen lighthouse challenge.

Step 1: Choose your Lighthouse Challenge

  • The Full 50:  Distance between all lighthouses = 430 miles
  • The Mainland Miles:  Distance between all mainland lighthouses = 179 miles
  • City Sculptures:  Distance between the Aberdeen lighthouses = 18 miles

Step 2: Choose your timeframe

Light the North, the lighthouse trail, runs from Monday 9th August – Sunday 17th October and you can choose to clock up your miles in a day, a week, a month or throughout the 10-week duration of the trail.
