Lanark Highlands Forest Rally


EVENT UPDATE – March 6, 2021:

Hello Competitors, volunteers and fans of the sport:

Recently members of the 2021 Lanark Highlands Forest Rally met to evaluate the viability of the event in the face of the current and future state of the health crisis that is facing our communities across the country.

It has been decided that due to the extreme transmission risk associated with the COVID-19 virus, and with the health and safety of our competitors, volunteers, spectators and host communities in mind, the Lanark Highlands Forest Rally scheduled for May 1-2 2020 has been cancelled.

There are no formal plans to reschedule but we are discussing whether it will be possible to postpone to later in the year. No further information with regards to that is currently available, but will be announced in good time for all involved if it does become a possibility.

Thank you for everyone’s support of this event, we hope to see you all again soon.

Community Initiatives:

This year we are running a number of initiatives to enable us to give back to the local community.

The Lanark Highlands Food Pantry and the Lanark Highlands Youth Group, both based in the Village of Lanark, benefit from our event. We value the contributions that competitors and workers have made in years past with their financial donations and non-perishable food items, and would ask that you think of them again this year.

  • We ask that teams bring in non-perishable food items that we can donate to the Lanark Highlands Food Pantry – these will be collected at registration/HQ.
