RUN FOR CHARITY

Since the inaugural Corrieyairack Challenge in 1993 over £700,000 has been raised by competitors to help fund the running of the respite care centre facilities, based at Badaguish and purchasing specialist equipment – ranging from specially adapted minibuses, side by side bikes and other specialist sports and activity equipment.

All proceeds from this event will go to the Speyside Trust, a small; independent registered Scottish Charity, raising funds to enable people with disabilities to enjoy an outdoor activity holiday.  We provide full 24hr respite care for individuals, giving them an independent holiday with activities to suit their ability including, canoeing, cycling, rock scrambling, archery, swimming, trampolining and much more plus day visits to places of interest. Every £200 raised enables a person with disabilities to enjoy a unique outdoor holiday experience. The Charity  relies totally on the generosity of those who believe in what we are seeking to do by encouraging us, working with us and giving us financial support. If you would like further information on what the charity does please visit www.badguish.org

Each Corrie Competitor is asked to raise a minimum of  £70 sponsorship, or £200 per team.  All competitors will be sent a manual sponsorship form once their team’s entry has been confirmed. If you require more sponsor forms then please contact us.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSClick here to go to the top of the page

Does a team have to be all the same category?
No, teams can be mixed categories ie any mix of R/C, W/C, M/B, or W/O. However, to qualify for team awards the team must all be the same category.
 
What happens if a team member pulls out before race day due to injury or other situation and no replacement can be found? Can the team still enter?
Yes, ideally teams will always consist of 3 members, but we would never preclude a team of 2 or even 1 taking part at the last minute due to injuries etc.
 
Does the team have to stick together on the route?
No, individuals go at their own pace and team position is based on the third member's finishing position not time.
 
How important is the team steward and what do they do?
Vital, team stewards are very important for event safety and marshaling especially over such a long route. We need help for water stations, road marshaling, start registration and other jobs too.
 
Can mountain bike categories change from mountain bike to road bike at Garva Bridge?
No, mountain bikers can only change wheels or tyres at Garva.
 
Do we have to pay for the camping at Kincraig?
No, there is free camping in the fete field (a basic farm field) with water, loos and showers provided.
 
Can I visit Badaguish to see the place?
Absolutely - call the Centre and we'd be delighted to welcome you for a look round and a cuppa!Click here to go to the top of the page
