Fife coastal run 6th October

Recommended Posts

Planning a coastal run in the East Neuk of Fife on the 6th.  Lovely spot for a run with many historic coastal villages and St Andrews.  A wee change before the mince weather sets in.

 

Have a route in mind and the Nav' will post options soon. If it's 2 groups can have a big and small loop and we cannae get lost as there is watter on 3 sides of the East Neuk! Rendevous is the cracking chippie in Anstruther which will serve as an incentive on getting the job done! (Suppers at the finish). 

 

Cafe stop factored in and pace is social

 

Good to have decent bunch!

 

Any takers?

Alright team, good interest so far with approx 8 confirmed so far.  Battle plan is as follows:

 

  • Leave Canal St station bar car park at 08:00,  drive to St Monans football pitches (KY10 2BB) and park up cars; loads of space and free parking.   ETA 09:50
  • Skin suits and aero helmets on (arf arf); Garmins booted up and MAPS loaded - yes we will be navigating with Garmins which I hear is a very good strategy!👺
  • Arncroach climb first (approx half a Talla) - sorry has to be done! 
  • Off then to Crail, flat-ish and fast-ish
  • Kingbarns via Kilrenny loop and if anyone fancies a wee paddle we can head to the beach for a quick stop (haud on it's the North sea and it will be October!!)
  • Off then to St Andrews via Dunino and the Grange road - great fast descent
  • Through to toon and down by the clubhouse for a wee photie or two.  Propose a cafe break/ice cream
  • Head out to Strathkinnes for a short loop and then back to St Andrews to take on the coast road climb
  • Pittenweem next and a visit to the harbour before final sprint to the motors at St Monans. 
  • Team buses to Anstruther for a fish supper or whatever floats your boat

We will see how many we end up with but suggest we stick to one route.  If a fast group and slow group we can agree meeting points (St Andrews/Anstruther)

 

Social pace so fast group 16/17 MPH slow 14/15 MPH.  If one group in between.

 

Transport-wise if people with cars/racks could they please post so we know roughly who can take who.  Champion! - an excellent day awaits us and obviously will keep an eye on the weather.

 

Here is the route - Vuelta East Neuka

quick update - the following are coming:

 

Greg, Dugald, Aurelien, Mark G, Aidan, Mark S, Dan, Colin, Andy M, as well as former members Gerard and Matt H (look out your long sleeves Matt!).

 

Transport wise so far we have confirmed (driver in bold)

Gerard and Matt

Greg and 1 other

Dugald and 1 other

 

Can other drivers please advise if taking the car and if happy to take a person/s?  It looks as though we need 3 motors roughly. 

 

Load up the route onto the Garmins in case we decide to split into 2 groups (see earlier thread)

 

cheers

G
