Highland Perthshire Challenge
28 Aug 2021
Coronavirus COVID 19
We have reluctantly had to postpone our 2020 events to new dates in 2021. All riders previously registered for the 2020 event have automatically been entered in the 2021 event and should have received a personal email about this. Please contact us if you have any questions about this.
We see a cycling sportif as a low-risk event but we always put safety first and so we are reviewing every aspect of our event organisation to ensure minimal risk of any form of infection. Our aim is that at all times we will meet or exceed Government and WHO standards.
Should you register and then subsequently decide to withdraw because of health concerns, we will be happy to refund the registration in full.
2021 will be the 10th anniversary of the Highland Perthshire Challenge! This charity event offers a memorable and enjoyable cycling challenge in some of Scotland's best scenery while raising funds to support a charity which is bringing help and hope to some of the world's poorest communities in Africa.
Participants have the choice of the Highland Perthshire 100 - a challenging 100 mile route or the Highland Perthshire 50 - a more modest 50 mile cycling challenge for those who would not be able to complete the longer route in eight hours or less. Both events feature electronic chip timing and we ask for a donation of £35 for the charity, rather than an entry fee. Because the proceeds go to charity, if you are able to tick the box for gift aid on the entry form then this is a great additional benefit. Participants may choose to raise additional funds through sponsorship if they wish but this is not required.
Our routes take in the historic Scottish towns of Blairgowrie, Dunkeld and Pitlochry and pass notable landmarks such as the Meikleour Beech Hedge, the Birk's of Aberfeldy and loads of famous bridges. Whatever route you choose you will be sustained by great sandwiches and home baking provided by our team at the feed stations as well as bananas and health bars for that added sustenance
This event is linked with the Cairn o' Mount Challenge (www.ridingforgood.uk) and the Tayside Challenge so why not consider entering one or both of those too! The events have the same ethos and Cairn o' Mount offers 30 mile and 80 mile routes - the longer route including the mighty Cairn! The Tayside Challenge has two routes - 81 miles or 46 miles. Book two events at the same time and you can claim a £10 discount or book all three to get £15 off the total donation!
For each sign-up, the organiser pays the Service Fee of 4% (min 50p). You pay no surcharge
