2007 Martin Currie
Rob Roy Challenge

                    Thank you for supporting the 2007 Martin Currie Rob Roy
                    Challenge. This programme provides information about
                    the event for participants, support teams, volunteers
                    and sponsors.
                     The 2006 Rob Roy Challenge raised £380,000 for charity,
                     a wonderful achievement in the event’s inaugural year. In
                     2007, with the commitment of the participants and the
generosity of their sponsors, we hope to raise even more.
Working with our partners at Events & Activities Ltd, we have retained the same
55 mile route as in 2006. This proved to be tough, but achievable, with 93% of
participants completing the course. We have reshaped the social programme to
place more emphasis on the Saturday afternoon and evening activities, leaving
Sunday free for breakfast and travel home.
I would like to express my gratitude to our corporate sponsors, without whose
support we could not run such an ambitious event. We have listed them on page
16 and many are also submitting teams.
Good luck, and I hope the weather is kind to us.

         The team at Events and Activities are looking forward to the second Martin Currie Rob
         Roy Challenge. As ever it has been a pleasure working with the Martin Currie Charitable
         Foundation and the three partner charities - CHAS, Cancer Research UK and Habitat for
         Humanity. They have done a fantastic job in helping to promote the event and recruiting
         marshals and support staff.
         We have created a wonderful Saturday programme at Kenmore for the participants,
         support teams, family and friends. This will include massage and physio for the weary, a
         traditional Highland games, children's play area, Rob Roy battle re-enactment, Golden
         Lions parachute jump, traditional Scottish dancing, pipe band, sumptuous highland feast,
         a ceilidh, Scottish & Newcastle bar and a spectacular fireworks display.
         We will be providing support and refreshments at all the main check points and water stops, and
         you can even stop for complimentary cream teas at Ardeonaig, during the final cycling stage!
         Well done to everyone taking part, and thank you for raising funds for the three partner
         charities. See you on 23rd June!

         David Fox-Pitt
         Managing director and founder of Events and Activities Ltd

         Two years ago a group of staff from Martin Currie met to talk
         about how we could build upon the company's long-standing
         charitable activities. We discussed ways in which we could raise
         more money for good causes, while also enabling us to become
                                                                              Charitable Foundation
         involved in a broader range of community activities. This led to
         the establishment of The Martin Currie Charitable Foundation. In 2006 we awarded
         funds to over 60 different charities, sent volunteering teams to Sri Lanka and India with
         Habitat for Humanity, and launched the first Martin Currie Rob Roy Challenge.
         Martin Currie staff select the charities to benefit from the Rob Roy Challenge. For 2007 we
         have retained the same three charities as in our inaugural year, and they have done a
         fantastic job in supporting the organisation of the event, particularly in recruiting marshals
         and helping to promote the Rob Roy Challenge to their own contacts. They are Children's
         Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), Cancer Research UK and Habitat for Humanity.
         On behalf of the trustees of the Martin Currie Charitable Foundation, I would like to
         thank all the participants and your supporters for your commitment to ensuring the
         success of the 2007 Martin Currie Rob Roy Challenge.

 !   Insect alert – Midges, Deer Ticks and Lyme Disease
       Midges – You have probably heard about the dreaded Scottish midges or Culicoides. If you haven't
 it is because Highland tourist operators tend not to mention them. But at the Rob Roy Challenge team
 we believe that 'forewarned is forearmed'. By taking a few simple precautions, your experience will not
 be disrupted by them. The first time you encounter a midge you will probably just feel itchy as the bites
 are not painful, just irritating. And the insects themselves are so small you can hardly see them.
 Midges shouldn't be a problem if you're walking, or there's a breeze, although they can become a
 particular nuisance in still summer evenings. Both Boots' own brand insect repellent and Jungle
 Formula have been proven to work well.
 We have also heard about a miracle midge repellent that some of the locals have apparently been
 using for years. It is also kind to your skin, as its success against midges was, it seems, a complete
 accident. The product is called Skin-So-Soft Dry Oil Body Spray, and it is produced by Avon, who
 have kindly agreed to provide participants with a free sample within the event Goody Bags. Have a
 look on their website at for additional supplies.
 Ticks are tiny spider-like creatures found in grassy, wooded and heathland areas. They attach themselves
 to small and large animals where they actively crawl about until they find a suitable site; they then start
 to feed by biting through the skin and sucking blood.
 Lyme disease is an illness caused by the bacteria which live in the guts of some ticks. Symptoms usually
 start a few days after being bitten. The first sign is often a pink or red rash around the site of the bite
 which can increase to a large circular patch up to 50-75 cm in diameter. Sometimes the rash can be very
 faint and difficult to see. Rashes appearing within a few hours of a tick bite are not caused by Lyme
 disease, but could be an allergic reaction to the bite.
 Flu like symptoms may occur which could last several weeks, but usually settle down with correct
 antibiotic treatment. More serious symptoms can occur weeks or months after if the initial symptoms
 are not recognised such as joint pain, facial palsy and loss of sensation in the limbs ; it is therefore
 important to check yourselves for ticks after the event.
 Prevention is the best way so please take note of the following measures:
 1. Keep your skin covered, wearing trousers tucked into your socks and a long sleeved top will help.
 2. Use appropriate insect repellents over clothing and exposed skin.
 3. Examine yourselves thoroughly after the event, they can get everywhere, I mean EVERYWHERE!
 4. Do not try to dislodge ticks with your fingers and do not apply any substances to try and remove
    them. Instead, gently remove attached ticks with tweezers as soon as possible, grasping them as
    close to your skin as you can.
