Unfortunately the Minitour 2020 has been cancelled, in line with Scottish Athletics guidance.


Dates: 25th - 29th May 2020

For the twelfth year, Fife Athletic Club is again inviting everyone who is under 18 to come and take part in the Minitour of Fife. We want you to take up the challenge of competing in a race every night for 5 nights. As always, the races will all be VERY different each night, and whether you finish first, last or somewhere in between you'll have a fantastic time out in the fresh air, getting to track your Tour progress online afterwards, and hopefully you'll have your action photo taken by our top photographers.

You don't have be a regular runner to take part, just come along and enjoy it - why not challenge your classmates, or your scout group or your football team - we'd love to see you there. The race routes you will run will be designed specifically for your age group so there's no need to worry about competing against much older boys and girls. There will be age categories for under 9s, under 11s, under 13s, under 15s and under 18s, and prizes will be presented on Friday to The Minitour winners in each category.

Online entries will open at 9pm on Tuesday 14th April. Note that entries must be made by an adult, who must already be registered with SiEntries.

There will be strictly no entry on the night. Transfer of numbers between runners is not permitted.

If you miss a race you can still come along and compete in the remaining races, but please remember that there are no prizes for the individual races, and that goody bags are only offered to those completing all five races. If you have to miss one race due to another commitment, it may be possible to be timed running the course in the late afternoon; to arrange this, contact Dave Francis at least the day before.

Race schedule:

  • Monday 25th May: beach race, West Sands, St Andrews
  • Tuesday 26th May: hill race, East Lomond
  • Wednesday 27th May: farmland race, Over Kellie Farm, near Arncroach
  • Thursday 28th May: time trial, Tarvit Estate
  • Friday 29th May: multi-terrain race, Kingsbarns

Please share cars as much as possible.

There will be no toilets or changing facilities at any of the races. No prizes will be presented at individual races. Every race will start at 6:45 prompt. We can't wait for individual runners!

You'll be given a race number that is colour coded for your age group. Numbers must be pinned on the FRONT and visible at all times during the race. If we can't see it then the marshals may not be able to direct you the right way, and your finish time may not be recorded properly. You'll use the same number every night so please remember to bring it with you each night. Any entrants under 8 years old must be accompanied round the race route by an adult.
