The ‘Round Strathaven 50’ Charity cycle event was held for the first time in 2002, using the same route as two 50 mile sponsored walks organised by the Strathaven Scout Group in 1968 and 1970. It has attracted an increasing number of participants each year, and in its 16 years to date has raised over £100,000 for the benefit of both the Strathaven Scouts and Guides, a number of local Scottish Charities including Capability Scotland, CHAS Scotland, the East Kilbride based Kilbryde Hospice Appeal and Child Line in Scotland and also of the Charity, Health Help International, for its work of healing and help for the poor and destitute in Southern India and Zambia.

Round Strathaven 50

We thought it appropriate to post an update on the 2021 Round Strathaven 50/15 cycle events.

Unsurprisingly in the current ever-changing landscape of restrictions we unfortunately do not have any firm news. We are however keen to try to run a "real" event this year but at this stage cannot confirm anything until event restrictions, school and hall availability, etc are known.

The committee will be reviewing the government guidance shortly after the 26th April milestone and all being well we will start planning towards an event date in late August or more likely September sometime.

We will update everyone by email / Facebook as soon as we can confirm a date and advise entry procedures at that stage.

In the meantime get the bike out from hibernation and start training as the weather hopefully improves.

Fingers crossed!
