Challenge Events

Looking for something a little more challenging than a run? Look no further!


If you're particularly sporty then why not try a triathlon? There are a variety of triathlons across Scotland, you can find your nearest one here.

Fancy Skydiving, bungee jumping or an international trek?

Forth Rail Bridge Abseil

12th June 2016

South Queensferry


You'll take in glorious views as you abseil, SAS style, 165ft from one of Scotland's most iconic landmarks at one of the most popular fundraising events in the country. Places are extremely limited for this event so if you fancy giving it a go don't hesitate to get in touch.


Rob Roy Challenge

18th June 2016


Hiking and Cycling


This event is well known for being an infamous challenge and for its infamous after party/ceilidh! The original challenge is 16 mile hike and a 56 mile cycle. However, this year the organisers have opened the event out and to include some shorter routes.  All routes include a 16 mile hike but you now have options to cycle 15, 35 or 56 miles. Or you can choose to miss out the cycling all together. In addition there are two cycle-only options - 35 or 56 miles.


Participants are encouraged to bring friends and family along to support them and be part of the Rob Roy Festival Weekend.


Tough Mudder

25th June 2016

Drumlanrig Castle, Dumfries and Galloway

10 Mile Obstacle Course


This is fast becoming the most popular challenge event in the UK. In the past few years we've seen plenty of folk put themselves through it to raise funds for Capability Scotland. If you fancy putting yourself through 10 miles of mud and extreme obstacles, why not get sponsored by friends and family? The t-shirt we will give you to wear on the day will start off white but we're pretty sure it won't stay that way for long!


Road Block Run

11th September 2016

The Meadows, Edinburgh

7K Obstacle Course


If you like the sound of Tough Mudder but it seems a bit extreme, this is the event for you. It's billed as the "Fun, Friendly and Foamy" race! This is a 7k course on the Meadows in Edinburgh, with fun obstacles for you to jump, slide, crawl and laugh your way over. Fancy dress is always encouraged at this event. Sounds like the perfect way to have a fun day out and raise money for a great cause.
