Back in 24 June 2007, the UK’s first closed-road cycling event made its debut.
Almost a decade later and with double the amount of riders, the Marie Curie Etape Caledonia is still going strong. By the 10th anniversary event on 8 May 2016 more than 30,000 participants will have taken their place at the starting line in the idyllic Scottish town of Pitlochry.
Attracting a wide spectrum of cyclists from seasoned club riders to challenge fundraisers, all with the goal of completing 81 miles of closed-roads set to the backdrop of Highland Perthshire, the atmosphere at the Marie Curie Etape Caledonia remains as infectious as ever.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary milestone event, Marie Curie Etape Caledonia is encouraging past participants to share their photos and memories from the event. Use #EveryPedalCounts to share pictures on social media or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org to be in with the chance of winning some Marie Curie Etape Caledonia official merchandise.
All General Entry and Pledge Places have been snapped up already, but participants can still be one of the 5,000 cyclists to take part in this cycling event by joining the exclusive ‘Marie Curie 400 Club’ by pledging to raise £400 for Marie Curie and only paying £30 for entry into the event.
