Rob Roy Challenge

Testimonials

Mark Beaumont

"I’ve been involved with the Rob Roy Challenge for 5 years. I love coming back each year and seeing so many people of all athletic abilities taking on the stunning, but pretty challenging route. I can't compare it to any other event in terms of camaraderie and high spirits. It really is a celebration of charity fundraising, with friends, in the great outdoors."

Mark Beaumont, record-breaking world cyclist and ultra-endurance adventurer.

“It is truly inspiring to see so many people challenge themselves to an event like this. I loved watching the satisfaction of each and every one crossing the finish line, a feeling which is so gratifying of your efforts and of the knowledge you’ve helped a great cause. Congratulations to all the participants!”

"We are honoured to have been the main sponsor of this event since its inception 10 years ago. With over 5,500 competitors since inception and nearly £3m raised for good causes, we can safely say this is one of the country's leading events and one which brings the right mixture of challenge and enjoyment for all those who take part."

Andy Sowerby, Executive director, Head of sales, marketing and client service.

“I’m so glad that all of the training was worth it in the end to make it across that finish line in Kenmore. The event was so well organised and the route was fantastic.”

Maria Dale, participant

“Together with four of my Eversheds colleagues, it was a great experience to take part again in this 55 mile challenge and raise much needed funds for children both in Scotland and further afield – so well organised and fantastic scenery to enjoy, especially as the sun came out later on.”

Julian Brown, participant

“The Rob Roy challenge was one of the best events I've been to. The organisation was incredible - nothing was left unnoticed! I feel emotional typing this because it really was a brilliant few days! See you next year.”

Emma Walker, participant

“Once again many many thanks for putting on this event – I have done a few similar events but the Rob Roy is head and shoulders above any event I have done in terms of support (what other event can you get a massage), organisation (great goodie bag) and scenery.”

Damian Purcell, participant

“I would like to thank all the volunteers (marshals, water stops etc) as they did a fantastic job. I would definitely recommend your event to anyone as I found it both challenging and rewarding for many reasons.”

Jim Hughes, participant

"The Rob Roy Challenge was a tremendous event, very well organised and supported. You really felt part of the "Rob Roy family". I am glad the training paid off and I am looking forward to next year already, I have no option as the kids had such a great time that there is no way they will let me miss it!”

Stephen Dryden, participant

“Thoroughly enjoyed the event, it was a great experience and met lots of great people during and after the event. The volunteers en-route where brilliant and so helpful, they really made the challenge so much easier. It was an extremely well organised event, from the challenge itself, the support, the party after, fireworks, campsite, the list goes on, thanks! The Rob Roy Challenge is a fantastic experience and one that I’ll never forget.”
