The MoonWalk Scotland takes place this Saturday evening and Sunday morning - make sure you don't get caught out by road closures with this handy and comprehensive guide.
Thousands of women are set to take to Edinburgh's streets in brightly coloured bras and take part in the fantastic MoonWalk Scotland this Saturday evening in an effort to raise money for breast cancer charity Walk the Walk.
Over £250,000 has already been raised by Edinburgh walkers and you can donate to the total at walkthewalk.org/donate/. Alternatively you can visit walkthewalk.org/volunteer/moonwalk-scotland-2018-volunteervolunteering to help out at the race - the organisation are currently seeking marshalls and water carriers among other roles.
The event has been organised to create minimal disruption, but there will be a number of roads closures between 10:30pm on Saturday night and 4am on Sunday morning.
