The Bethany Sportive is a non-competitive Sportive Event organised by Bethany Christian Trust. All the funds raised from the registration of this event will go to help homeless and vulnerable people throughout Scotland.
Now in its 7th year, this exciting event for serious amateurs is growing from strength to strength. We're excited to announce that we have introduced chip timing for all routes and a new shorter route option to this year's Bethany Sportive. Participants can choose from three route, the Super Challenge Route of 102 miles, a slightly shorter Challenge Route of 72 miles and, new for 2015, our Taster Challenge Route of 30 miles.
For the Super Challenge and Challenge routes, riders leave from Lasswade High School, Bonnyrigg and head south over the Moorfoot Hills to Innerleithen where the Super Challenge and Challenge routes split. The Super Challenge route now takes a spectacularly scenic route around the borders and both routes meet again just west of Selkirk. For the Challenge route, riders return to Lasswade from Innerleithen via the River Tweed and Gala Water valleys. Both routes then return to the High School over the Moorfoot Hills once more. Each participant will be individually timed and the finishing times will be published on the Bethany website after the event.
Feed and water stations will also be on hand offering the riders refreshments along the way.
Entries are limited to 450 with an entry fee of £36 per entrant for the Super Challenge and Challenge Routes and £23 per entrant for the Taster Challenge Route. You can benefit from our early bird fees if you register before the 31st December 2014.
