Luthrie is a tiny, pretty village situated just off the main Kirkcaldy to Dundee road approx. 4 miles north of Cupar. From Kirkcaldy, Luthrie is the next turning left after the Perth/Cupar junction.

Parking in Luthrie is very limited and so please make every effort to car-share, observe instructions from any parking marshals, and if there aren't marshals around, show consideration for local residents. The future of the race depends on the goodwill of the village residents.

Starting from the idyllic setting of the Lower Luthrie Farm cowsheds, the Norman's Law course follows road, bridle path and then footpath due west towards Ayton. Bearing right at a farm gate, the route is marked as it crosses three fields to the open hillside, where runners have to pass through a large gate in the boundary fence (Grid Ref NO307197). Once on open hillside, runners are free to choose their own route to the summit (an iron-age fort) with spectacular views of the Tay. From the summit, the route follows a path east to the boundary fence (Grid Ref NO309201) from where the route is marked to Luthrie and the finish. The course markings must be followed.

There will be (modest!) prizes for Male and Female winners in U20, 20-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+ categories. The first Fife AC runner home will be awarded the Alan Milligan Memorial Quaich; the first Fife AC female runner home will be awarded the Norman's Law Shield

Norman's Law View

Junior Race starts at 1.30pm, no age limit, c.1.5k in distance, with some elevation, on farmland. There will be juice and chocolate for all runners.

We will make every effort to allow ‘Seniors’ to watch the Junior race before the Norman's Law race starts, so there is a run for everyone in the family.

Post-race refreshments will be available in Luthrie Village Hall. Please bring your own cup or mug.
