Participant T-Shirt

This has been mainly due to rising cost of venue and other charges connected with this live event. I hope you will all understand the predicament I am in after keeping the event going over the past number of years. Things may change in the future only if we can get reasonable sponsorship and a more importantly an understanding Edinburgh Council whose venue rental cost seem to increase each year.

Join the rest of the world who are being invited during the month of July to take up this challenge. We already have entries from Australia, USA ,New Zealand, Germany , France, England ,Ireland and of course many parts of Scotland.

All participants will receive a bespoke T-shirt and a beautiful bespoke medal with a ”Great Scottish Event Tartan Ribbon”.
