21 July 2017Riding the Marches - 13th August


An entry form for this year’s Riding of the Marches can be found on the link above. 

An entry fee has been introduced for the first time this year.  This is to cover costs incurred by OIC for providing support to this event.  We are happy to pay this fee as we have been fore-warned for many years that a charge will be likely in future and appreciate that we have had many years with none.

Also a polite request that riders complete the whole route if possible.  We have had complaints about smaller groups hacking back to Kirkwall after the stop at Scapa in particular.  It is a busy day in town and a lot of work is put into the road closures etc so that we can hold this event so it would be good if we can adhere to the arrangements made if possible.  If you do wish to leave the procession early we would prefer you are collected from where you wish to stop.

If anyone has any queries contact KAREN TAIT:  07900 231 954

The link below contains an Invitation to the Flag-Bearer’s party.  All involved are welcome and should RSVP to Karen, either via FB, by email: karengreaves@hotmail.co.uk or drop her a text: 07799 643 137.
