The Arran Sportive

Only a month away! The Arran Sportive is returning this year on Saturday 9th September, bigger and better than before. This exciting 56 mile cycle around the gorgeous Isle of Arran is in aid of Ocean Youth Trust Scotland and will be filled with fast flowing roads, lung busting climbs and exhilarating descents, promising to be a fun and thrilling event.

After the cyclists have completed this challenging and beautiful road cycle, Visit Arran will have a barbecue up and running with delicious local produce whilst Arran Brewery have some of their own local beverages on offer too. There may even be buskers and prizes!

If you don’t fancy the challenge of cycling round the stunning and exciting Isle of Arran yet still want to help support our worthy charity, why not become a volunteer? The Arran Sportive are still looking for enthusiastic people to help on the day with registration, water stations, marshalling and many other jobs too. To become a volunteer, email
