SYHActive Day Loch Lomond

10:00 - 18:00

On Saturday 18th April 2015 SYHA Hostelling Scotland will host the inaugural SYHActive Day, a celebration of the great outdoors at Rowardennan Youth Hostel on the shores of Loch Lomond at the heart of The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. 

The new SYHActive outdoor challenge is an open, individual or team duathlon (run or walk and cycle) for all fitness abilities; organised with Sport Ecosse Events.

Setting off from Rowardennan Youth Hostel, competitors will run or walk 10 miles round the shoulder of Ben Lomond to Inversnaid. From the transition point the 34-mile cycle ride will pass Lochs Arklet, Chon and Ard on the way to Aberfoyle. The route then heads to Drymen and along the coast of Loch Lomond before finishing back at Rowardennan.

The SYHActive outdoor showcase is a free event, and open to all.

However SYHA Hostelling Scotland requests that all those intending to attend register by emailing:

The cost to enter the SYHActive challenge is £20 with the aim to raise a further £50 or more in sponsorship for SYHA youth programmes.
