Drumlanrig Cycle Challenge cancelled
Due to Coronavirus (Covid 19), we are sorry to say that we are cancelling the Drumlanrig Cycle Challenge that was due to take place on Saturday 2 May 2020.
We know that so many of you have been busy fundraising and preparing for the challenge – we were looking forward to meeting you on the day and are really disappointed to have to cancel the event. Your support is needed more than ever to help people like Prem from Nepal, where poverty and lack of awareness means children can be easy prey for traffickers, so please do join us in May next year. We’ll update the website with the exact date for the 2021 challenge as soon as we can.
In the meantime, thank you for your understanding and for your continued support. And please join us in prayer for a swift end to the Coronavirus outbreak, and for all those affected in the UK and around the world.
The Drumlanrig Cycle Challenge has been getting people on their bikes and enjoying some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery since 2006. The routes have changed a bit over the years but the aim remains the same – to enjoy a fantastic day of cycling on largely traffic-free roads whilst helping to bring hope to people living in poverty.
Due to Coronavirus (Covid 19), the 2020 event has been cancelled and the next Drumlanrig Cycle Challenge will take place in May 2021.
What you need to know
The course offers two routes covering 100km and 44km. Both routes start and end at the magnificent Drumlanrig castle, both take in Scotland’s breathtaking scenery and both include the infamous Dunreggan Brae.
As ever, there’ll be feed stations en route to keep you going, as well as a celebratory big feed at the finish line.
There is no entry fee to take part. However, the Drumlanrig Cycle Challenge is a fundraising event and all money raised will help Tearfund fight poverty and unlock potential in some of the toughest places on earth. During the sign up process you will be asked to consider donating what you can and at least what you would normally pay to enter an event like this. To really impact your giving, we’d love it if you could fundraise and help change even more lives. Once you’ve signed up to take part, we can provide fundraising support and help you set up a JustGiving page or send you sponsorship forms.
Cycle for children like Prem
Prem lives in a rural community in Nepal. Poverty and lack of awareness mean children can be easy prey for traffickers. But thanks to Tearfund's partner, not only is 14-year-old Prem wise to dangers like trafficking, he is empowered to help keep his schoolmates and peers safe too.
Every £36 raised could help prevent one child from being trafficked.
