Etape Loch Ness

Starting and finishing in the Highland capital of Inverness, the Etape Loch Ness is a 66 mile cycle sportive in April that will take you around Scotland’s most famous loch, past the iconic Urquhart Castle and through local tourist destinations such as Drumnadrochit.

The route startes in Inverness at Bught Park and finishes by Eden Court.  It follows the A82 west to Fort Augustus, passing through the villages of Drumnadrochit and Invermoriston, arriving in Fort Augustus where it crosses the historic Caledonian Canal and then returns to Inverness via south Loch Ness on the B862/B852.

We will pay your entry fee and give you an Outfit Moray branded cycling top, plus an Outfit Moray goody bag, in return for a minimum sponsorship amount (varies depending on event costs).

We also have our more environmentally friendly ‘tree not tee’ option where, instead of providing a branded top, we’ll plant a tree in our Trees for Life grove on your behalf. Not only does this reduce waste and your carbon footprint for event, but it also reduces your sponsorship target. You could also cover your entry fee, which will leave you free to raise as much as you can, without the extra pressure of reaching any targets.

Age: 18 years or over

Please note: this type of fundraising is vital to support our work with young people in Moray, so we do expect people to make every effort to raise their agreed minimum sponsorship. If you aren’t successful within three months of the event, we will ask that you to consider donating the shortfall yourself.
