Event Description
Rob Roy Challenge

The Martin Currie Rob Roy Challenge offers walking and cycling starting from Kenmore and offering fantastic views. You can choose walk-only or cycle-only options, or combine the walk with a 35 mile or 56 miles road cycle. The full selection of routes that could be chosen are:

  • Schiehallion's Shadow - 14 mile walk/run and 56 mile cycle
  • Etape Rannoch - 56 mile cycle
  • Big Red - 14 mile walk/run and 35 mile cycle 
  • Rob Roy Ramble - 14 mile walk

After a very successful 12th year in 2018, the Rob Roy Challenge will return in 2019 on Saturday 22nd June. Want to take part? Register here.

With a central base at Kenmore, competitors no longer need to provide their own support teams. However we encourage friends and family to come along to support challengers at Kenmore, where all routes start and finish.

The Rob Roy Challenge is a fund raising event that was launched in 2006 and has enabled over 6000 hardy souls to battle the Scottish wilderness and raise £3million for a number of worthy charities. It has been one of the most successful fundraising events in Scotland and with your support it will continue to grow and benefit charities for years into the future.

The cycle routes take in Kinloch Rannoch and Loch Tummel. Why not come and train on the route prior to the event so you know exactly what to expect. Find out more about the local area and where to stay HERE

I did the Rob Roy Challenge in 2013 and was my 1st time ever doing anything like this, I wanted to do it for my Gran who I sadly lost to Alzheimers, it was such an amazing well organised event and loads of support from everywhere, I had such an amazing time and next years isn't coming quick enough to do it all over again.

Just a brief note to say how much we enjoyed the Rob Roy challenge. The whole event was so well organised there were many highlights, specifically having a bit of chocolate cake before 9.30 at the first stop and the massages at Balquhidder and Kenmore.

Just a wee note to say how much I enjoyed partaking in the Rob Roy Challenge. The organisation was superb, the helpers and check point staff fantastic offering huge encouragement, a smiley face and lots of refreshments, the safety notices, brilliant, warning us of sharp corners as we hurtled down various hills, the evening party such fun with a great band to entice us to dance to limber up the limbs and magical fireworks to celebrate our achievements. It really was a fantastic day walking and cycling in and around the most breathtaking scenery and was a joy to do. I hope lots of money was raised for your charities and will keep an eye on the website to see the final total. I will definitely be back again, probably as support crew as I normally only do an event once. Many many thanks to all the team.

With the legs having eased off, midge bites disappeared and energy levels slowly returning, its easy to now look back and see what a fantastic event you put on this year.

As a competitor, the organisation from start to finish was faultless, stewards could not have been more helpful and encouraging and the catering was spot on (both during and after the big event). The massage teams looked as if they were being worked hard and certainly brought a lot of relief to our two squads - this brings a real unique touch to the event.

Our support team also had a great day, especially in Kenmore where the kids had a riot playing on all the inflatables - this element alone is a major plus for the Rob Roy Challenge making it a real family fun day out.

Thanks again, and best wishes for the continued success of this great event.

Both Melissa Denholm and myself really enjoyed the challenge and were most impressed with the organisation and support provided on the day. Certainly I am already keen to take part next year, and hopefully will be able to organise a larger team from the Bank of New York Mellon.
