All events

Our regular calendar of events means there's always a challenge to get involved in to support Venture Trust...


Highland Fling Bungee Jumps

Various dates, 2 locations (Glasgow, Perthshire)

Consider yourself to be the ultimate adrenaline junkie?! Then Venture Trust has the perfect challenge for you.

Working with bungee jump specialists Highland Fling, we are offering a free fall experience of 40 metres, whilst travelling up to 50mph before a bungee jump cord pulls you upright!


Skydive - St Andrews (Glenrothes)

Various dates

For those of you looking for a real buzz then this is the event for you! Experience one of the most exciting and exhilarating events anywhere!

You'll be safely harnessed to a fully qualified instructor as you leave the aircraft at 10,000ft and free-fall for aprox 30 seconds before the parachute is deployed and you gently descend to the ground.


Great Scottish Run (Glasgow)

Saturday 30 September & Sunday 1 October 2017

Scotland's largest running event offers either a 10k or half marathon route through Glasgow City Centre - with a great atmosphere and lots of encouragement along the way!

'Super Saturday' offers events for all the family with a toddler dash, family milers and junior heroes.


Pilmuir Aquathlon (Newton Mearns)

Saturday 7 October 2017

Why not give yourself a new challenge? The distances of this event make it really accessible, consisting of a 750m open water swim followed by a 5k run.

Takes place in and around Pilmuir Quarry, near Newton Mearns, around 12 miles south of Glasgow.


Dramathon (Speyside)

Saturday 21 October 2017

***EVENT SOLD OUT*** Why not consider this event for 2018?

A run through the heart of malt whisky country. Largely following the Speyside Way, the event offers full marathon, half-marathon, 10k and relay options, taking participants past a number of the area's famous distilleries.

For those who love whisky, there's the added bonus of getting a stamp from each distillery you pass - for each stamp you'll receive the corresponding minatures (at the end of the race!)...


Supernova: The Kelpies (Falkirk)

Friday 10 & Sunday 12 November 2017

***Saturday 11 event now sold out***

This fantastic 5K route is a great opportunity to explore the home of two 30-metre high horses! The Kelpies are mythical creatures who love to play at dusk, each one weighs over 300 tonnes.
Come and immerse yourself in a light journey with them, dress code: high vis!

Earlier start time of 5pm on the Sunday for a family friendly event.


Foxtrail Nocturnal Ultra (Dunbar)

An entirely new event for this year... starting at 4pm, competitors will have 6 night-time hours to complete as many 5km trail circuits as possible.
Sign up as a team of three and work together to complete this Ultra feat. Whilst not running team members can relax and keep their muscles warm in our heated recovery zone, listen to some music, refuel and watch the competition closely on the live stream leader-board!

Organise your own...

Want to walk the West Highland Way, cycle the length of the country or break a world record to raise money for Venture Trust? Well, don't let us hold you back!

Annabelle (right) organised her own fundraising challenge - to swim the length of the River Tweed - 96 miles - in her local pool, over three months. She used a free online tracking tool which showed her progress along the river, and used a combination of traditional paper sponsor forms and an online giving page.

Contact us for more inspiration, support and advice. Set up a fundraising page with Virgin Money Giving and download a sponsor form.
