Event description

Description

Cycle around Arran, climb Goatfell, the island's highest peak, or do both on the Big Arran Challenge! The money you raise will be used to provide practical care and support to men and women affected by homelessness and poverty in Glasgow. Find out more about the work you will be supporting on our website.

A registration fee of £35.00 is payable for each event.

We also ask that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £100 for the Duathlon and Monster Duathlon, or £75 for the cycle-only or climb-only events. We’ve found that when people start spreading the word, they quickly exceed these targets.

Option 1: A vigorous climb - Climb Goatfell

Goatfell is one of Scotland’s most popular peaks, at just 134 feet shy of a Munro and with stunning views across the island and over to Ben Lomond, Jura and Ireland.

Start: 8.30am or 11.15am
Duration: 4-6 hours

Option 2: Cycle - North island loop

Explore the northern half of Arran’s stunning scenery by bike on this 42 mile cycle challenge.

Start: 8.30am or 11.15am
Duration: 3-5

Option 3: Full loop round the island cycle challenge

Take in 57 miles of breath-taking scenery on your saddle in this Island-lapping cycle challenge.

Start: 8.30am or 11.15am

Option 4: Figure of 8 island cycle challenge

For cyclists seeking a new challenge, criss-cross the island and its notorious String Road climb. At 75 miles long, it’s sure to really stretch those legs.

Start time: 8.30am or 11.15am
Duration: 4-8 hours

Option 5: Glasgow City Mission duathlon

Climb Goatfell, the island’s highest peak, then cycle 57 miles around the Island. All in one day! Have you got what it takes?

Start time: 8.30am
Duration: 10 hours

Option 6: Glasgow City Mission Monster Duathlon

Climb Goatfell then cycle 75 miles across the island in a figure of 8. All in one day! You’ll need to be seriously fit to think you can pull this off in time to make the last ferry home.

Start time: 8.30am
Duration: 10 hours
