September 10, 2017 at Fort George in Inverness.
Cost – Child (Up to and including 16 yrs) Events – £5 & £7.50 (Duathlon Only), Adult Events £10 & £15 (Duathlon Only), Family Ticket (2 Adults & up to 4 Children) – £20. Eventbrite will charge an nominal administration fee for each booking payable at time of registration.
What will I receive – You should receive a confirmation email from the Eventbrite Online Entry Website confirming your ticket purchase for the relevant event you wish to participate in. Please bring that along on the day of the event. A race briefing will be given to you when you register on the day.
All Participants – On completion of your event you will be presented with a memento by a veteran. Unfortunately, we are unable to time the event so would urge all participants to bring their own timing device should you wish to time it yourself.
Safety – The event is run on open roads and while it is expected that traffic will be light, the risk associated with using the public highways cannot be understated. Participants are encouraged to wear bright (preferably Hi-viz) jackets, vests or T-shirts. If you are participating in a cycle event then the wearing of a cycle helmet will be MANDATORY. Failure to do so will result in your withdrawal from that event and while you will be invited to participate in either a walking or running event, should you decline that invitation, no refund will be offered.
Fundraising for Poppyscotland – We don’t insist that you get sponsorship for this event but clearly it would be great if you tried to raise as much as possible through your efforts. Sponsor forms can be downloaded from the Poppyscotland web page (http://www.poppyscotland.org.uk/downloads-resources/) or you can set up Just Giving and Virgin Money Giving pages that are linked to Poppyscotland. Best of Luck!!!
General Interest – the Highland Military Tattoo (www.highlandmilitarytattoo.com) will be taking place on the evenings of 8th, 9th and 10th of September in Fort George. If you are travelling to participate in Poppyscotland’s Ride, Ramble or Run, then please consider staying on to enjoy what promises to be a spectacular military event in truly awe-inspiring surroundings.
Social Media – Please share your interest, your training, your fundraising aspirations and encourage friends/family/colleagues to get involved as well. Twitter @poppyscotland #RRR2017, Facebook through the Poppyscotland page.
