Marathon/Half Marathon and Cycle Sportive
The Rotary Club of Aberfeldy & District welcomes you to Highland Perthshire, famous for its beautiful scenery and outdoor activities.
Join us for the Highland Perthshire Marathon/ Half Marathon and Cycle Sportive, Run or Bike on 2nd September 2017. This is the fifth event we have held, and we are doing so in partnership with some National and Local Charities. A great big thank you to all our Sponsors and Charity partners, for all their help, advice, and funding in the preparation and running of these events.
As we are all volunteers, we do not take any fees nor have we any paid staff, so all the funds we raise through this event goes to Charity. We are also able to keep the entry fee realistic with great value for your money but without reducing the quality of your experience. Have a quick look around the site and see how we have over the past four years raised upwards of £60k for charitable causes.
We are well used to organising outdoor events and we treat the safety of every competitor in every event with the highest standard of care. That is why we have on standby a professional medical organisation which aims to run the event to HSE regulations and provide medical care onsite with ambulance availability.
We have provided a secure online encrypted facility through EntryCentral to take your entry and payment and you will be provided with an immediate receipt. Click the EntryCentral logo before 30th June 2017 for an early bird discount. For postal entries we have provided you a downloadable entry form from this site which you can return with your payment to our Event Secretary.
We really do think that this is one of the best value for money packages on the Scottish circuit. Included in the price is: free camping and car park – post race refreshments – shower – ceilidh – a medal for all finishers in the Cycle Sportive plus first place medal and medals for all finishers in the Marathon/Half Marathon plus first second and third prizes in all categories for the running events. - a commemorative item. Hard to believe we know but it’s just honest to goodness value.
We are limited to 500 competitors for each event and we are working very hard to make your visit extremely enjoyable and rewarding, join us and see for yourself.
This will be the fifth year we have organised this event which has grown over the period. This promises to be a very exciting day for all the family and we are sure all will have a fabulous time.
