Drumlanrig Tearfund Challenge
29/04/2017 - Drumlanrig Castle, Dumfries, Scotland - Sportive
Weeks to go until event: less than 6 weeks
The Tearfund Drumlanrig challenge is organised and supported by members of churches from Dumfries and Nithsdale. Their aim is to provide participants with a memorable and enjoyable cycling challenge in the glorious scenery and traffic free roads around Drumlanrig Castle, and at the same time raise funds for Tearfund. Tearfund is a Christian charity dedicated to bringing relief, hope and a future to some of the world's poorest communities and to those suffering from natural and man-made disasters
Participants have the choice of an 81 miles, 57 miles or a 27 miles cycling challenge. Whatever route you choose you have the added challenge of tackling the copious supplies of sandwiches and home baking provided by the church members at the feed stations. The short route will not be timed and is intended for those who don't want to rush.
Rather than an entry fee of £30 or £40 we ask for a small registration charge plus a voluntary donation. In this way Tearfund can reclaim 25% on top of your donation from the taxman (provided you have paid UK tax ).
You can see examples of the valuable life changing work of Tearfund at www.tearfund.org please give generously. ALL of your donation will be passed on to Tearfund.
