Update on Tour de Forth- 8/6/16
A big thanks to all the riders, volunteers, bike marshalls, supporters and Corporate sponsors that took part in Tour de Forth 2016. We are delighted to announce that due to the generosity of our Corporate sponsors - ECS, Aberdeen Asset Managers, St James Place and UBS, all of your entry fees are going to Mercy Corps and Cash for Kids. You have now raised an amazing £30,000! We will do a final tally at the end of June and announce here and on Facebook who has won the Endura outfits and sunglasses and your total funds raised.
We are collecting feedback and will review what went well and what could be improved (definitely, a lot more food at the feedstation!) and then announce here and on FB our plans for 2017. If you entered, we will let you know in the Autumn by email, and also on this site and on FB when entries will open. The event was full this year so we will also review how many additional riders we can take and make it clearer when entries close. In the meantime please continue to raise funds for these two fantastic charities and pencil Sunday 4th June 2017!
Tour de Forth 2016
The Tour de Forth takes place at 9am on Sunday 5th June 2016. It is a 97.3km route around the River Forth taking in the two bridges along the way. Challenge yourself on the hilly first half, but remember to save something for the return leg. This event is being run to raise money for Radio Forth's Cash for Kids and Mercy Corps with all funds raised equally split between these great causes.
