Now in its 8th year, and having raised in excess of £300,000 since 2012 to help people struggling to cope in Scottish agriculture, RSABI Great Glen Challenge 2019 is launched, sponsored by full service law firm Ledingham Chalmers.
Heralding the start of fundraising for the much-anticipated event on Friday 30th August, 27 teams are set to be rallied for this year’s Challenge, supported by a range of partners including The Scottish Farmer, Royal Bank of Scotland, Rettie & Co. and Bank of Scotland who all field teams.
Established as a unique and exciting one day team challenge for rural businesses and organisations, teams of four people will compete against each other along designated stages between Fort Augustus and Fort William, covering a continuous 46 km route in stunning, inspiring scenery. Competitors cycle, kayak, walk and run to a prize-giving reception at Neptune’s staircase at the end of the route.
RSABI’s Nina Clancy, who will be coordinating the event said:
“With continued volatility and uncertainty for farmers across the country, RSABI has experienced an increase in demand for its services with around 25 new clients a month looking for practical, emotional and financial support. The importance of this year's Great Glen challenge cannot be underestimated, we really need everyone in Scottish agriculture to help us smash our target of £50,000 and make this the best year ever. "
