Now in its 5th year, the RSABI Great Glen Challenge is returning to the Highland trail on Friday 26th August 2016, and has signed up 23 teams from rural organisations, businesses and individuals to compete in this unique and exciting one day team challenge (see below for all event documents and maps).
The Challenge is sponsored by Ledingham Chalmers, solicitors and supported by main partners The Scottish Farmer, Bank of Scotland, CKD Galbraith, Royal Bank of Scotland and NFU Scotland. As well as some returning faces, new teams are lining up to take part and enjoy some fun, informal team building as well as a good dose of healthy competition as they mountain bike, kayak, walk and run through the Great Glen!
Contact Paul Tinson direct if you wish to register a team or learn more.

The Challenge is designed to be inclusive and all sporting abilities are welcomed.
Price & Fundraising
- Team Entry (team of 4 people + support driver) = £550
- Individual pledge: Each team member is asked to make a £250 pledge. Rather than fundraising being the only way to achieve the pledge total, this year we are also challenging competitors to sign up new members for the RSABI Supporter Scheme too. There will be a separate prize for the team that brings in the most supporters!
In 2015, 25 teams took part, with the team from the Royal Bank of Scotland eventually crowned winners - a fantastic sum in excess of £62,000 was raised overall for the charity.
