Donkey Brae race 2022

31 Jul 2022 - 31 Jul 2022

Organiser's Description

1pm Sunday 31 July 2022 at Hawkcraig Park, Aberdour, Fife, Scotland


Sponsored by 

Theis Scottish Athletics registered 7-mile race starts and finishes 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. 

The 7 mile race is open to runners aged 16 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). Due to the bridge at Aberdour harbour being in need of repair, this year’s Donkey Brae run will NOT go down and up the Donkey Brae as usual. Instead, the route on Hawkraig Road will traverse the walkway at Aberdour train station. Unfortunately the course is not suitable for wheelchair users.

1 mile runners can enter on the day from 10.00am – 12.00pm at Hawkcraig Park, Aberdour KY3 0UP. 

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 (set by Fife Council, not us) will apply at Hawkcraig Park itself.

We will be using chip timing at this event. Numbers and chips should be collected at registration 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 refunds for anyone withdrawing from the race. 

The Donkey Brae race is once again part of the Aberdour Festival. Why not bring your friends and family and enjoy a great day out? As well as the race 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.
