Organiser's Description

Valleyfield Snowdrop 5k Trail Run


Actual Run Sunday 6 March 2022 @ 10am

Virtual Run option Sunday 28 February - Sunday 6 March 2022


Valleyfield Snowdrop 5k Trail Run 

Sponsored by MOWI and TechnipFMC

During the Covid lockdowns of 2020/21 many runners benefitted from using the pathways and trail routes around West Fife Woodlands, all of which are maintained by local volunteers. This is a  fundraising event with proceeds going to two local charities - West Fife Woodlands and Shiresmill Therapy Riding Centre in Fife. We hope you will join us for this 5k run and in doing so raise funds to help towards the maintenance and upkeep of these special woodland pathways and the vital work of the therapy riding centre.


By entering this 5k trail run you are supporting health and wellbeing and well deserving charities. Expect the course to have uphills, downhills, twisty paths, muddy and frosty paths, tree roots, tarmac paths and farm trails -  it is a fantastic route with lots of friendly marshalls, well signposted and will be full of glorious snowdrops to admire as you run past. 

Sunday 6 March 2022. Registration 8.00am - 9.45am, pre race briefing 9.50am, Start 10.00am

Standard entry £14.00, Affiliated £12, Virtual entry £8

West Fife Woodlands

Is a community group of volunteers dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and accessability of West Fife Woodland areas. They have already created the popular ”The West Fife Woodlands Way”, and improvements to the paths around Culross and the plagues grave. The abundance of wildlife in the area is testament to their ecological work too. Monies raised will buy material and machinery for their ongoing work in joining up existing paths in areas of West Fife and toward the continuing maintenance of the trails and paths.


Shiresmill Therapy Riding Centre

The Centre’s important therapy work is only made possible due to a dedicated team of volunteers and the kindness of charity donations. For any riders with learning disabilities, horse riding can prove to be a life enhancing hobby to help with fitness and social interaction. During lockdown when the centre has been unable to open for visitors, the volunteers have still worked daily to ensure the wellbeing of the horses. Our event will be providing financial support to help them continue their vital work for the local community.


This is our first event and we hope that it’s success will lead to it becoming an annual event to raise funds for these vital charities. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the snowdrop woods
