Invesco Perpetual Highland Adventure Race

11th & 12th Sept 2010!

Racers will start at sea level in Inverness on the east coast of Scotland and will travel by bike, foot and kayak the entire length of the Great Glen, which stretches over 100km, in just 24 hours. The final challenge will involve a traverse of Ben Nevis, reaching the highest point in the UK before descending to the finish in Fort William on the west coast.  This epic journey will involve teams navigating their way through the Great Glen, setting up a wilderness overnight camp and many other sub challenges along the way.

Race facts:

  • 24 hours duration
  • Sea level to the highest point in the UK
  • Over 100km
  • 5000ft of ascent
  • East coast to West coast of Scotland from sea to sea.
  • Travel the full length of the Great Glen
  • Travel the length of the Caledonian Canal including Loch Ness, Loch Oich, Loch Lochy

Teams will be between 4 and 6 people in size and participants should be prepared to cycle, kayak, hill walk and camp overnight.  You will also need a support team, involving one or two drivers to transport you and your equipment around the event as well as keeping the team supplied with plenty of food and water. The support drivers will have their own separate challenges during the race. There must be a minimum of 4 team members racing at any one time.

"Thank you for a thoroughly well organised and excellent weekend. We are proud that we got everyone through and each of us feels we have achieved something for ourselves and the Mitchemp Trust." - Alex Hatfield, Chase De Vere

Teams will work towards raising £4000 for the Mitchemp Trust's work with disadvantaged young people. This challenge will require good planning, preparation and sheer determination. You will be given a great deal of support along the way from experienced fundraisers to expert guides. This exciting team challenge will not only test your ability to work together effectively but also present you with many personal challenges along the way.

Fitness plays a major part in the enjoyment of the event. The better your preparation, the more you will enjoy and succeed at your challenge. Advice on training and suitable equipment will also be sent to you.

Your fundraising will enable vulnerable children to experience the outdoors, build their self esteem, improve their self reliance and make a real difference to their lives. You will be given comprehensive fundraising advice when you register which will enable you to achieve your target or even beat it! Don't worry if this is your first time fundraising for a charity, we will give you full support along the way - many teams in the past have been surprised at how successful they've been.

Fundraising Advice
The Highland Adventure Race has two very different but inextricably linked components: the fundraising and the physical challenges. In our experience the most successful teams tackle both elements with equal determination and gain the support of the whole company.
