The Giffordtown 5k road race is held on a flat and fast out-and-back course on quiet country roads. There will be a Temporary Traffic Restriction Order (TTRO) in place that should ensure a traffic free environment. The Giffordtown 5k has an AUKCM course certificate ensuring that the distance is accurately measured.
Registration is at the Giffordtown Village Hall from 9.30. The start/finish area is approximately 150m from the hall. Please note that there are no showering facilities at the hall. After the race all runners will be provided with a free traditional Fife AC post-race tea.
Parking: At the Giffordtown Hall behind the hall. Limited parking on the roads next to the hall.
Prize giving: Once results have been compiled and verified, prizes will be presented inside Giffordtown Village Hall at approximately 12 noon. Age group prize winners who entered on the day may have their prizes posted to them.
There will be prizes for the 1st 3 Men and Women and the 1st athlete in the Men and Women U20, O40, O50, O60 and O70 categories.
A bonus prize of £50 will be awarded to the 1st male that beats the men's course record of 15.16 held by James Donald of Dundee Hawkhill H or to the 1st female that beats the women's course record of 16.45 held by Morag MacLarty of Central AC.
