Welcome to the Tearfund Drumlanrig Challenge


In support of tearfund


Due to the coronavirus emergency, it is with regret that the event is cancelled for 2020

Big thank you to everyone who has supported the event in previous years

We have raised around £150 000 for Tearfund over the years


The Tearfund  Drumlanrig challenge is organised and supported by members of churches from Dumfries and Nithsdale. Their aim is to provide participants with a memorable and enjoyable cycling challenge in the glorious scenery and traffic free roads around Drumlanrig Castle, and at the same time raise funds for Tearfund. Tearfund is a Christian charity dedicated to bringing relief,hope and a future to some of the worlds poorest communities and to those suffering from natural and man-made disasters

Participants have the choice of a 100km or 44km  cycling challenge. Whatever route you choose you have the added challenge of tackling the copious supplies of sandwiches and home baking provided by the church members at the feed stations and at the finish in the magnificent grounds of Drumlanrig Castle



 For the last four years we have organised a fully supported Tour of Scotland with baggage transfer, support vehicles meals and food on route. There was no tour in 2017, but we are planing a tour for 2018, first week in July
