RSABI’s flagship annual outdoors team event, the Great Glen Challenge, is returning for 2024 and for the second-year running will be sponsored by Gillespie Macandrew.

Last year’s event raised over £50,000 towards the work of RSABI which provides practical, emotional, and financial support to people in Scottish agriculture. The 2024 event hopes to surpass this amount and take the total amount raised since the event was launched to over £500,000.

Now in its 12th year, the Great Glen Challenge 2024 will take place on August 30th when competing teams of four, plus a support driver, will take on the multi-sports event, with four designated stages set out on a scenic route between Fort Augustus and Fort William.

Competitors will cycle, kayak, walk, and run to a prize-giving reception at Neptune’s Staircase, located at the end of the route, with the designated driver picking up and dropping off fellow team members at various locations along the Great Glen Way.

Lois Newton, partner of land and rural business at Gillespie Macandrew, said: “We are delighted to once again be supporting the Great Glen Challenge and to help highlight the excellent work of RSABI. Our staff are very much looking forward to competing in this fantastic event for the third year running in the great Scottish outdoors.

“The Gillespie Macandrew team has significant experience of the challenges individuals and businesses face in the rural sector and we are proud to support the vital emotional, practical, and financial services RSABI provide to people in Scottish Agriculture.”

Entries to the Great Glen challenge are now open. Teams can be submitted by completing the Sign-Up form which is available on the RSABI event page.
