Falkland Hill Race
29 Jul 2023
FALKLAND HILL RACE - Saturday 29th July 2023 starting at 1.00pm
We look forward to welcoming you to the Falkland Hill Race. The race is a challenging multi-terrain route which combines fabulous views with some of the best running trails that Fife can offer.
We will be donating £3.00 from each entry fee to Fife Coast & Countryside Trust to help continue the good work they do with maintaining and upgrading Fife's network of trails & paths.
The Falkland Hill Race will be run as part of the Falkland Gala day and will start and finish at the main gala arena in the Tyndal Bruce Park.
The Gala will have a pipe band, various events, a bar, food outlets etc.
The start and finish will be in the Tyndal Bruce Park which is situated off the A912 a few hundred metres North of Falkland Village Centre. The postcode is KY15 7BY.
There will be parking available on the Gala Field and there is parking at the Falkland Memorial Hall and also at the new car-park adjacent to Pillars of Hercules. (both of these are just a 10 minute jog from the race start) Please be aware that the village is likely to be very busy, so car-share where possible and park with consideration at all times.
The race will follow the same route as last year. The total length is now just under 6 miles. The race takes in a variety of terrain including hard paths, grass fields, land-rover tracks and open hillside. A route map can be found at: Hill Race Route 2023
The route takes in the summit of Falkland Hill and the overall ascent is over 400m. There are some very steep sections both uphill and downhill. In wet conditions great care should be taken. The route is well marshalled and route finding is not difficult.
Public toilets are available in the Gala Field itself and there are also public toilets in the village adjacent to the Falkland Community Hall.
The race organiser is unable to provide any water or drinks. Entrants must bring their own hydration/nutrition.
