Now in its 8th year and having raised in excess of £300,000 since 2012 to help people struggling to cope in Scottish agriculture, RSABI Great Glen Challenge 2019 has now been launched! In 2017, the ‘Great Glen Girls’ from Tarff took on the challenge and raised over £1,600 for RSABI.

Now, two years later, two teams have decided to take on the challenge, but which team will be placed higher?! Both teams have a joint sponsorship account on Virgin money and the page can be accessed through the following link: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/TeamTarffandTarfftastic

The teams will be faced with kayaking (6km), mountain biking (46km), running (17km) and hill walking (18km). Each team will be supported by their driver taking them to and from the various start and finishing points.

We wish both teams the best of luck with training and we’re looking forward to seeing how they get on! Who will be crowned the Tarff winners of the GGC 2019?!
