A Welcome from the Chairman

Doesn’t seem like it, but we’re already on our 3rd year of the Pitreavie Gift! Preparations have been going on behind the scenes to make the 3rd running of the Gift even better.


Last year’s weather conditions proved difficult for all, not least the postponement from our original date in January to March. Hopefully the recent summer weather we’ve been experiencing continues into January and we’ll be basking in 25 degrees of heat! Taking into consideration the effect on this year’s event, it’s been decided that no fall back date will be set for the Gift if adverse weather conditions come around in January. Putting it simply, the Board will try their utmost to make sure the event is run on the 26th January!


So as you’ve already seen, the Pitreavie Gift returns on the 26th January 2014. Entry forms will soon ready for all competitors and the closing date for all entries will be the 30th November 2013. No late entries will be accepted, so don’t delay! The heat draw for the main event, the 100 metres Gift itself, will take place on Monday 13th January. Details of time and place will follow.


As with the past two years, we’ll be returning to the Pitreavie Athletics Centre in Dunfermline. I’d like to thank Fife Sports and Leisure Trust for the assistance they’ve given us over the years and continue to do so. For those that may not be aware, the track at Pitreavie is currently being re-laid, so here’s hoping for some fast times on the day.


We’ll keep you updated as much as we can on here and on our Facebook page (Pitreavie Gift) and look forward to seeing some good athletics at the 3rd running of the Gift.


Yours in sport


Graeme Lister
