Join us on our hill walk challenge and raise funds for your organisation.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

On Saturday 2nd June, The Rotary Club of Alloa (RCA) is once again organising a sponsored hill walking challenge to enable anyone interested to take the opportunity to connect with their local environment, take part in an interesting activity and raise funds for your club/venture.

THE WALK AND ADDITIONAL ROUTE

The walk starts from Hillfoots Rugby Club, Tillicoultry to the Beacon on the Nebit, a height of some 250 metres and a total round trip of about 8km (5miles), for much of the route you will follow a path or track. The entire route will be risk assessed by RCA. The walk should take between 2-3 hours to complete for recreational walkers.

An additional route for those who wish a greater challenge can continue their walk from the Beacon to the Nebit summit at a height of over 500 metres and a total round trip of 10km (6 miles) and should take approximately 3-4 hours to complete for recreational walkers.

PLEDGED MONIES

To comply with HMRC regulations, monies pledged require to be accounted for by The Rotary Club of Alloa and once this is done, all monies, minus the gift aid portion, will be returned to your organisation. RCA will supply the necessary fundraising materials along with information to help prepare people to complete the challenge.

START AND FINISH TIMES

Walkers can set off at any time between 9.30am and 11.00am. No walkers will be allowed to start after 11.00am.

Walkers are asked to check-in at the Registration Tent based in Hillfoots Rugby Club, where they should hand in their sponsor sheet(s). Each walker will be given a registration wrist band which will be verified at the Beacon and Summit (if applicable) by the stewards. Sponsor sheets will be returned to the walkers when they return to the check-in tent at the end of the walk.

 

STEWARDING

The walk will be stewarded throughout to ensure no one gets lost or strays from the route. The Ochils Mountain Rescue Teamalthough not directly involved, will be in the vicinity. Ample mobile communications will ensure speedy response in the event of anyone requiring assistance.

 

YOUNG WALKERS

Any young person under 16 years of age MUST be supervised and accompanied by responsible adult AT ALL TIMES. They will not be allowed on the hill otherwise.

REFRESHMENTS

Water will be available along the route.

AFTER THE WALK

BBQ refreshments will be available in the tent at Hillfoots Rugby Club. You may wish to give a donation for your burger. This will be a great opportunity to relax and reminisce about the event.
