No, each member can go at their own pace and team position is based
on the aggregate finishing positions.
You are only entering as a team in respect of team prizes and the
obligation to raise the minimum team sponsorship.
What happens if a team member pulls out before the race and no
replacement can be found? Can the team still enter?
Yes, but teams should always consist of 3 members to qualify for
prizes. No team will be disqualified for having 2 or even 1 member
taking part at the last minute due to injuries etc.
Substitutes will be accepted through SiEntries up until the Monday
before the event. All substitutions must be done by the
Team Entry Owner on SiEntries. The organisers reserve
the right to refuse any substitute application.
substitutions will be accepted on the day of the event.
– the "Team Entry Owner" can process a substitution within the team
from 15th April until 5pm on13th June 2022. They should log into SiEntries,
click on "Edit Team" and then go the team member withdrawing from the event and
click on "Substitute" alongside their name to load on the
substitute's details. Even if the Entry Owner is being
substituted out of the event, they are the only person who can make
changes to the team's details and preferences, other than Elizabeth
Christie at the Admin office (email@example.com).
If a team
cannot find a substitute themselves, they can contact the organisers
as they sometimes have names of people who would compete and who
they could put in touch with the team.
What time do runners and walkers leave from Kintail?
joggers all leave at the main start at 11.00am from Kintail.
Walkers leave 2 hours earlier at 9.00am.
If I take a bag to the start of the event, can it be taken back
to the finish in Beauly for me?
Yes, there is a “Bag Van” at the start and at the changeover points
of the event so that competitors may leave their belongings to be
transported back to Beauly for them. All bags should have a
competitor number tag attached to identify them.
How much sponsor money do I need to raise?
Each team pledges to raise a minimum of £500,
excluding gift aid, for nominated
charities. Highland Cross is itself a charity and annually nominates
principal beneficiary charities so all fundraising from the event is
paid first to Highland Cross who then distribute it to the charities
for their selected projects. (See Charities section of website
for current year’s nominated charities).
participants raise funds for their own chosen charities as opposed
to the Highland Cross nominated charities?
Highland Cross does not permit participants to use the event to
raise funds for causes other than those nominated by the Organisers
nor does it allow participants to select which of the basket of
charities that their fundraising will support.
The event is created and delivered by a totally voluntary group and
much of the staffing comes from charities who have benefitted in the
past or who are nominated to benefit from the current event. Even
beneficiaries of "Small Grants" are asked to make their efforts
available to deliver the event. It is only through this community of
interest structure that the event can be delivered as cost
effectively as it is. It would therefore be totally unfair if a
charity that did not contribute to the creation and delivery of the
event was to benefit from it.
