The Tearfund Drumlanrig challenge is organised and supported by members of churches from Dumfries and Nithsdale. Their aim is to provide participants with a memorable and enjoyable cycling challenge in the glorious scenery and traffic free roads around Drumlanrig Castle, and at the same time raise funds for Tearfund. Tearfund is a Christian charity dedicated to bringing relief,hope and a future to some of the worlds poorest communities and to those suffering from natural and man-made disasters.
Participants have the choice of a 81 miles or a 57 miles or 26 miles cycling challenge. Whatever route you choose you have the added challenge of tackling the copious supplies of sandwiches and home baking provided by the church members at the feed stations and at the finish in the magnificent grounds of Drumlanrig Castle.
