Since 2014, along with a number of other large events in our region, we have been a fortunate recipient of a grant from Dumfries & Galloway Council’s Major Festivals and Event Strategy. This has enabled us to offer a number of incentives to entice competitors and spectators to Dumfries & Galloway for our event.
■ #InItToWinIt Entry Fee Discounts
We have awarded £10,000 in Entry Fee Discounts to our competitors since 2015.
■ Spectator Area Works
We have spent in the region of £10,000 on works to our Spectator and Service Area. Despite this investment, spectating on our event has always been free of charge.
■ Subsidised Ferry Travel
We have funded almost £30,000 of ferry travel since 2014, in conjunction with our travel partner, Stena Line.
