Caledonian Challenge calls for entries

The RBS Caledonian Challenge offers you ‘The Walk of Your Life’. The challenge is for teams of four people to complete 54 miles within 24 hours, whilst raising funds to help strengthen local communities.The epic journey will take participants through some of the UK’s most remote, rugged and stunningly beautiful landscapes. In just one day, participants will experience majestic views of Ben Nevis – the UK’s highest mountain, the splendour of Glen Coe, the wilds of Rannoch Moor and the scenic Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.

The RBS Caledonian Challenge was founded in 1996. Since then, more than 12,000 people have successfully taken part and raised over £8 million to support the work of the Scottish Community Foundation. This is your chance to participate in Scotland’s premier outdoor team ultra-challenge in aid of charity.

* A satisfying physical endeavour

54 miles in 24 hours is tough. It is the equivalent of two full marathons and two ascents of Ben Nevis – all without sleep. But it is achievable. People from all walks of life and of all shapes and sizes take part. Just about anyone with the right preparation, a good team and a positive attitude can successfully complete the course. And we will support you every step of the way.

* A fun team exercise

Teams of at least four adults will start together and stick together throughout the course. We also advise teams to train and fundraise together too. A Support Crew is essential for providing practical assistance and encouragement at the event and every team is backed by a network of supporters, so there is a role for everyone. Whether you take part as a group of friends or workmates, by collaborating for a few months towards a common goal you will bond with your team mates and share an amazing experience together, whilst sharing some laughs along the way too.

* An invaluable service to others

An integral part of the Challenge is to raise a significant amount of funds to strengthen the communities close to the course and throughout Scotland. This provides a meaningful purpose to your endeavours and gives you an opportunity to help enhance the quality of life of thousands of people in some the UK’s most remote communities and disadvantaged neighbourhoods.

100% of the funds you raise will support the valuable work of the Scottish Community Foundation.
