The Caledonian Challenge


Could you win the Courage Cup?

Have you overcome hardship or injury to take part in The State Street Caledonian Challenge or The Extra Challenge? This means that you are eligible to enter the Courage Cup, which offers an added incentive to complete the course. With a cash prize and �3,000 to give to a chosen charity, it could make the difference!

The winner of the Caledonian Courage Cup will be announced in July and will receive a ₤300 cash gift for personal use and ₤3,000 to be given to one of the many community groups that the Scottish Community Foundation supports.

A Winning Difference
Last year�s winner, Edinburgh man Bob Murray, who suffers from coeliac disease which often goes undetected but leaves sufferers with digestive problems, serious anaemia, and sudden weight loss, chose the Feis Lochaber group as recipient of the �3,000 community award, donated in his name.

Feis Lochaber provides opportunities for young people to learn traditional dance, music and song, often in Gaelic, and stages performances throughout the year involving the young people themselves.

Telling Your Story
To be eligible for the Caledonian Courage Cup, nominees must have completed the walk in its entirety and submit a 300-word description about how they overcame personal hardship or injury to participate.

Nominations may also be made on behalf of a participant in the State Street Caledonian Challenge.

Submission information will be available soon.
