Entries are now open for the Etape Caledonia, with the date confirmed as Sunday 19th May 2019.
Laying claim to the title of the UK's longest-running closed road sportive, the Etape Caledonia is under new management for 2019 with organisers Limelight Sports taking over from IMG. The event will remain based in Pitlochry with a choice of two routes of 85 miles and 40 miles.
Both routes feature closed roads, chip timing, feed stations, a finisher's medal and a broom wagon service for riders struggling to finish the course.
Standard entries to the 85-mile route are priced £64.99 while the shorter - and considerably easier - 40-mile route costs £29.99.
Premium entry to the 85-mile route is also on offer. Priced £125, you'll get a unique Etape Caledonia cap and jersey as well as free parking and the option of having your race pack posted out to you ahead of the event.
Discounted charity places are also available for riders who will commit to raising funds for the Marie Curie charity.
