Event Summary

Event Overview

Be part of the Arran Sportive, a fantastic event to raise funds for Ocean Youth Trust Scotland.

This challenging open road event covers 52 miles (90km), a full island loop with 1300 metres of climbing.

The route will start and finish in Brodick going anti-clockwise round the island.

Affectionately known as ‘Scotland in miniature’, Arran offers an incredible variety of scenery – mountains, woodlands, beaches and outlying islands – making it undoubtedly one of Scotland’s most spectacular cycling destinations. There is a striking contrast of rolling countryside in the south and mountainous landscapes in the north, including Arran’s highest peak Goatfell. The Arran Sportive will not only provide you with an abundance of stunning island landscapes and nature, but fast flowing roads, lung busting climbs and exhilarating descents will ensure you will have an unforgettable day in the saddle.

The island is easily accessible from the mainland by ferry with short ferry crossings from Ardrossan and Claonaig in Kintyre. Due to limited parking available in Brodick, it is recommended that participants leave their cars on the mainland and board the ferry as passenger only. Please note there is a secure bag drop available at the Events HQ and Registration in Brodick Sports Pavilion. Shower facilities are also available.

This event aims to raise funds for the youth development charity Ocean Youth Trust Scotland. All proceeds of the event will go directly to the charity to help them deliver their life changing ‘adventure under sail’ to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
