What is Tour de Clacks?

The Tour de Clacks is our affectionate name for the wonderful cycle and walking paths that can be found around our wee county.

Our Challenge has to comply with Covid19 restrictions so, unlike our previous challenges, there will be no marshals, no barbecue and no fixed date for the event. Instead, we propose that any time between 9th and 24th October you, or you and your family group, complete a 20km tour of Clackmannanshire at your own pace and choosing your own route. When you've completed the 20km please send us your stories and photographs and, with your permission, we will put them on our Facebook page/website/magazine.

How do I do it?

You can cycle, walk, run, jog, use a wheelchair, push a pram or whatever other mode of transport you want to use for your chosen 20km tour of Clacks. You certainly don't need to complete the full 20km in a single day - if you prefer you could complete the distance in stages over the full two weeks of the event. This is intended as a fully accessible event but we would remind you to please remember and abide by whatever Covid19 guidance is in place.

How do Rotary raise money for End Polio?

You register for the event here. Each entry requires a £6 donation to End Polio Now.

You'll be delighted to hear that thanks to our partners the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, every £1 we raise from your registration donations is matched 2-to-1 (so £1 is worth £3!)

Now, if you can, simply download and print a pennant (to show you're taking part), and a sponsorship form (to collect the all-important donations)!

You can use the challenge to raise additional money for you own local cause (Scouts, football team, Primary School, Charity, etc.) by getting your friends to sponsor you – you keep all that money. Wear your club outfits while participating! Your registration donation goes to Alloa Rotary for End Polio Now, just fly our pennant to help us raise awareness and help any passing Rotarians say hello to you, and thanks!

How do I get sponsorship?

How you get sponsorship is really up to you. Here's what you might say:
“I am taking part in Alloa Rotary Club’s Tour de Clacks Challenge. Rotary are raising money and awareness for End Polio Now and to take part, I am making a donation to that cause. But I am also raising sponsorship for Alva Brownies(eg) by doing this – will you sponsor me? You can send me your donation to: ... etc”

Don't forget to send photos to us to show that you undertook your challenge!
