Arran Sportive in aid of OYT Scotland - CANCELLED

05 Sep 2020

Arran Sportive in aid of OYT Scotland - CANCELLED has now closed and you will not be able to sign-up for it. Please check the Organiser's Description for any organiser updates.

Organiser's Description



Regrettably, due to the current situation with the global pandemic, we do not foresee being able to run our annual Arran Sportive in September. Out of respect for the residents of Arran and in the interests of health and safety of our riders and volunteers, we have therefore taken the decision to cancel this year’s event.


Your current entry fee for 2020 will therefore be automatically transferred to the 2021 event for which we have a provisional date of 4th September 2021 (subject to restrictions having being lifted). If you are unable to participate in 2021 but wish to donate the value of your entry fee to Ocean Youth Trust Scotland or require a refund, we will happily arrange this for you (please see details below).


In order for us to host the Arran Sportive, we have to be in at least Stage 4 of the Scottish Government restrictions. While this may indeed happen by September, it does not allow sufficient time for us to organise the event.

Ocean Youth Trust Scotland appreciates your support of this event. Our decision has been taken with both great consideration and reluctance but is deemed necessary in light of the current situation.


We do hope you are able to join us next year for the 5th annual Arran Sportive in 2021, an event we will endeavour to make the biggest and best yet!


What to do now


Your entry into the cancelled 2020 event will automatically be deferred until next year’s event, which is provisionally happening on 4th September 2021. Only if you are unable to ride this event please contact us at with both your allocated entry number as shown on your Entry Central receipt and your preferred option as shown below:


Please note: You must let us know if you wish to withdraw by Friday 7 August 2020.

Option 1: Ask for a full refund of your entry fee

Option 2: Withdraw from the event but donate your full entry fee to Ocean Youth Trust Scotland. This will allow us to continue with our life changing youthwork at sea.


If you are happy for your entry fee to be deferred until September 2021 please do nothing. You will remain on our entry system and will have a place in next year’s event, about which we will keep you updated.


Please note that all refunds will be made through Entry Central and to the account you used for the original payment. Given that our events team is working on flexible furlough, entries may take several days to process, therefore we would appreciate your patience.


Thank you again for supporting Ocean Youth Trust Scotland.
