North Berwick Law Race

Results from North Berwick Law Race, Wednesday 5th August


This Gruelling Hill run has embedded itself onto the running circuit. 

Starting at the Harbour, the three mile circular route runs through the Lodge grounds and climbs 200ft to the top of North Berwick Law. The event attracts competitors of all ages and abilities, from international hill runners to local children aged 10 years. A great challenge for all.

The Law Trophy is awarded to the first person to complete the course, and the Milk Board Trophy to the first woman who completes the course.

Prizes are also presented to the first local, first veteran (male and female) and first under 15 (boy and girl).

The current men's record has stood for 17 years; John Wilkinson completed the course in an impressive 17 minutes 53 seconds in 1991. The current ladies' record was set in 1999 by Angela Mudge and stands at 20 minutes 24 seconds.

The race, promoted by East Lothian Council in partnership with Edinburgh Athletic Club is sponsored by North Berwick Community Council.
