Donkey Brae races 2019

28 Jul 2019 - 31 Jul 2022

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

1pm Sunday 28 July 2019 at Hawkcraig Park, Aberdour, Fife, Scotland


Sponsored by The Woodside Hotel and Run 4 It.

These Scottish Athletics registered 7-mile & 2-mile races both start and finish at Aberdour’s Silver Sands. The scenic courses are of mixed terrain over undulating coastal paths, the 7 mile runs between Aberdour and Dalgety Bay whilst the shorter 2 mile run remains within Aberdour itself. Make sure you keep something in reserve for the notorious Donkey Brae climb towards the finish!

The 7 mile races is open to runners aged 16 years and over while the 2 mile race is open to those 9 years and over. Everyone who takes part will receive a medal & results will be available on the Aberdour Festival website and our Facebook page. Prizes for M&F, Vets, Super Vets and Super Vets Plus (60 and over). Unfortunately the course is not suitable for wheelchair users.

1 mile runners can enter on the day from 10.00am – 12.00pm at The Woodside Hotel, KY3 0SW. Due to the anticipated high entries, there will only be entries for the 2 mile run on the day. 

We encourage runners to travel by public transport where possible as parking is restricted. The car park at Aberdour train station is free, but busy! Aberdour has excellent train links. Please note, parking charges (outwith our control) will apply at Hawkcraig park itself.

We will be using chip timing at this event. Numbers and chips should be collected from The Woodside Hotel, KY3 0SW on the morning of the race, between 10.00 am and 12 noon. Chips can be attached to running shoes (laces) and must be returned after the race.  A charge of £5 per chip will be applied for non-return of chips. As noted above, access and parking are difficult for late arrivals so please allow plenty of time. There are no guaranteed refunds for anyone withdrawing from the race. If you cneed to withdraw, contact the race organiser and should there be a place on the waiting list, that person will be contacted and a refund allocated to you if they accept.

The Donkey Brae races are once again part of the Aberdour Festival. Why not bring your friends and family and enjoy a great day out? As well as the 7 & 2 mile races there is a fun run open to all & for runners and non-runners alike there will be a fabulous village market with refreshments, entertainment and much more.
