Sponsorship of The 20th Nairnshire Challenge
30 May 2017
John Gordon and Son Ltd are proud to have been part of the final Nairnshire Challenge.
2017 Marked the 20th and (regrettably) final event. The Nairnshire Challenge is a 30-mile sponsored duathlon organised annually by The Rotary Club of Nairn to raise money for charity.
The route of the challenge wends its way through the length of the glorious Nairnshire countryside by foot and by bike, and is so popular it has become the third biggest annual event in Nairn's calendar.
The event is not a race but a personal challenge and begins with a run / jog / walk (depending on participants' preferenceand abilities!) of 13 miles on tracks across the wilderness of the moors to Drynachan Lodge. Here the participants change over to bikes and follow a picturesque 17 mile route on public roads through wooded Nairnshire to the seashore at the Links in Nairn.
Over the years an astonishing total of over £500,000 has been raised for worthy causes.
