Family Fun Event

Artemis Great Kindrochit Mini Challenge

If you are taking part in the Quad, you can come for the weekend and bring your family to support you. There is free camping available right on the shore of beautiful Loch Tay, and once your supporters have waved you off at the start, they can take part in their own Mini Challenge - a fun event for children between 5 and 12 years of age inclusive involving walking or running, a cycle ride and a creative challenge.

The Mini Challenge will take place while the Quadrathletes are away on the hill/kayak sections, so if you are at Kindrochit for the weekend supporting someone doing the Quadrathlon, the Mini Challenge gives you something to do with the family while you wait. The Mini Challenge course will be centred around the Event Hub and the tiny village of Ardtalnaig, on the south shore of Loch Tay. For the final creative challenge you will use the points you've scored on the other challenges to "buy" rudimentary equipment and erect a makeshift flagpole to welcome home the Quadrathletes. You may only use the supplied equipment so don't bring anything from home (apart from your bike and helmet!) Your final position will be decided by the height of your flagpole from its base to highest point. 

The details of the route are as follows: 

  1. Uphill run on grass, approximately 200m distance, 20m of ascent
  2. Haggis Hunt in woods including uneven ground
  3. Uphill cycle on tarmac, approximately 1km distance, 100m of ascent (bring your own bike and helmet)
  4. Final team task involving building a simple structure from supplied materials

Each child needs to be accompanied by a parent / adult aged 18+ who takes part too. The adult can be accompanied by up to 3 children. 

The Registration Fee is £20 per child and includes:

We would also like each child to try and raise £50 for the Event Charities, Mercy Corps and Mary's Meals.
