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.
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.
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!
