SORRY THE LIST TO RECEIVE APPLICATION FORMS FOR HIGHLAND CROSS 2016 IS NOW CLOSED.

From the replies received from 2015 competitors, unsuccessful applications from previous years and new applications, we are again oversubscribed.  We have this morning been bombarded with e-mails requesting that their names be added to the list to receive an application form at the end of January and we already have over 330 requests for the 265 teams available and we find that most application forms are completed and returned to us.

 All applications received up to 9.45am today will be added to the list and are being acknowledged.

 The Organisers apologise to anyone who wished to add their name to the list but can only suggest that if they are interested in Highland Cross 2017, they mark 1st September 2016 in their diary as the date to register for an application form for 2017.

Making it happen
Highland Cross happens because a huge selection of individuals, charities and supporting organisations come together to create the community that delivers the event.  The Organisers are often asked about our challenges in delivering the event. There are lots, but we have a superb team who make it happen for the participants.

 

As an example one of the biggest logistical exercises is moving all the 700+ bikes to Affric! The transport is led by Murray Campbell with his team of drivers from R&F Campbell Ltd. Tractor units from Murray's firm haul 40' container trailers from R&F Campbell Ltd, MacCallum Haulage Ltd, Muir of Ord and TOM Vehicle Rental, Nairn. The access road to Affric is a real challenge and requires huge skill to negotiate it with such large vehicles.

 

Without this generous donation of equipment and skill Highland Cross could not happen.  As participants prepare for their day, we ask them to remember the remarkable Community whose  generosity makes it possible. They make it happen so that the participants challenge and  experience can generate funds for great Highland causes - we ask them to honour the efforts of the  supporting community by maximising their fund raising!
