All leftover tatties will be distributed to charity, including Foodbanks, homeless shelters and lunch clubs for the elderly.
There is also a 'Spud and Spoon' race for kids or adults. The whole occasion is played for laughs so if you get along make sure to take lots of photos and catch the 'potato carriers' in the most ludicrous poses.
You can choose to use our event to fundraise for charity or your local group or just take part for good old fashioned fun!
The Great Perthshire Tattie Run is Free to enter through support from Perth & Kinross Council and is part of Perth's Medieval Festival which includes lot's of other fabulous activities.
The final question for finishers is what to do with their 'Tattie' haul. Chips or roast potatoes are an obvious answer but might not fit in with a healthier lifestyle. Potato salad, cheese and leek bake or shepherd's pie might be better options.
