'Champions of the North Road'

Who are we

The organisation held its first race way back in 1901. That was from Lerwick, and it is this iconic race point that continues to be the main focus of the race programme.

Competing from the Shetland Isles is the ultimate test for fancier and bird, and the much coveted prize is the fabulous King’s Cup, one of the most valuable and prestigious trophies in the whole of pigeon racing.
