Rob Roy Challenge

The Rob Roy Challenge is a fund raising event that is now entering another year. It was launched in 2006 and has enabled over 5,500 hardy souls to battle the Scottish wilderness and raise almost 3million for a number of worthy charities. It has been one of the most successful fundraising events in Scotland and with your support it will continue to grow and benefit charities for years into the future.

After the successful 10th year in 2015, the 2016 event sees an update to the route to simplify logistics for competitors while adding an enhanced variety of challenging route options. With a central base now at Kenmore competitors no longer need to provide their own support teams, however we do encourage friends and family to come along to support challengers at Kenmore and to enjoy the Rob Roy Challenge Festival weekend.

Also, for the first time we are offering two cycle-only options; covering the cycle sections of Big Red and Schiehallions Shadow.

The Pedal for Scotland Big Belter

The Pedal for Scotland Big Belter is a Sportive ride of 110 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh. The ride uses the same start and finish points as the Classic Challenge ride, but takes a completely separate route through the Scottish Borders, meaning you get the buzz of Scotlands biggest bike event on a quieter route designed for serious road cyclists. The transport service will serve Big Belter riders too, meaning there is an easy and hassle free way to get you and your bike to the start in Glasgow Green, or back home from Edinburgh at the finish.
