Race: Saturday 28th April 2018
Age Limit: Runners must be born in 2003 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. There is a Junior Race (Emily Hill) and a Senior Race (Normans Law: eligibility, DoB before 2004). We make every effort to allow ‘Seniors’ to watch the Emily Hill race before the Normans Law race starts, so there is a run for everyone in the family.
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. From the summit, the race heads south east back down to Luthrie and the finish. 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 (all cake/scone/biscuit donations very welcome!).
There will be (modest!) prizes for Male and Female winners in U20, 20-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+ categories. The first Fife AC runner home will be awarded the Alan Milligan Memorial Quaich; the first Fife AC female runner home will be awarded the Normans Law Shield.
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?
