Race: Saturday 29th April 2017
Age Limit: Runners must be born in 2002 or earlier
Emily Hill Junior Race starts at 2.30pm, no age limit
Registration: Entry on the day at Luthrie Village Hall. No pre-entry, and no limit on race numbers.
Luthrie is a tiny, pretty village situated just off the main Kirkcaldy to Dundee road approx. 4 miles north of Cupar. From Kirkcaldy, Luthrie is the next turning left after the Perth/Cupar junction. Bring the family, bring a camera…….enjoy!
Starting from the idyllic setting of the Lower Luthrie Farm cowsheds, the course follows road, bridle path and then footpath due west towards Ayton. Turning right at a farm gate, the path is marked as it meanders through fields to the open hill side, where runners have to pass through a gate to avoid the boundary fence. Once on open hillside, runners are free to choose their own route to the cairned top (an iron-age fort) with spectacular views of the silvery Tay below. Then the fun commences as runners are free to follow their own route back to the finish at the cow-sheds and a rousing reception from the bovine population. Don’t be put off if you don’t know the area: you will find your way back!
You will experience a hill race suitable for novice hill runners, stunning scenery and a traditional Fife AC post-race tea back at Luthrie Village Hall.
The first Fife AC runner home will be awarded the Alan Milligan Memorial Quaich.
The race is run under Scottish Athletics rules, and the FRA safety rules also apply; please familiarise yourself with the latter.
Parking is often tricky at Norman's Law, so please make every effort to car-share, observe instructions from any parking marshals, and even if there aren't marshals around, show consideration for local residents. Ask yourself "would I be happy if someone parked like this outside my house?".
Or for those who don't live too far from Luthrie, why not take the opportunity for some cross-training by cycling to the race?
