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!

Norman's Law View

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.


Race Arrangements:

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?
