161st Famous Alva Games

A highlight of the Clackmannanshire summer, the Famous Alva Games returns for this annual event on the second Saturday in July.  Action from 12.30pm with admission on the gate.

The Games features the full range of traditional events including athletics, cycling, highland dancing, heavy weight events and the crowning glory of games day – the four hill races run over Torry for competitors from under 12 all the way up to the British Championship Hill Race run at about 4.15pm.

During the half-time interval at circa 2.30pm there will also be ‘fun’ races over short distances for visiting children (four age restricted races for girls and the same for boys) and over slightly longer distances for visiting adults (a separate race is run for ladies and gents – minimum age = 18) with medals for the first three children in each event and “age appropriate” prizes for kids and adults.

This is the full timetable of events via the Famous Alva Games website.

Action from 12.30pm with the first races on the track, with the Opening Ceremony at 1pm.

Admission on the day. Adults £7/Children & Senior Citizens £4/Children Under 5 free/Car park £2.
