Media Release: 2015 date confirmed for St Andrews Chariots Run


TICKETS are now on sale for the 5km, Chariots Run on the West Sands, St Andrews which this year will take place on Sunday 31st May with a start time of 11am for the children’s race and midday as the expected 5km start.

Ticket prices are £15 for adults and £3 for children and are available from

The race, now in its fifth year saw its biggest turn-out last year with over 300 adults and over 100 children competing for what is firmly established as the definitive Chariots of Fire experience and a great family event.

Last year, nearly £4,000 was raised and donated to local charities, with all prizes and goodies generously supplied by the local community.

This year, event organiser, Ben McLeod, is hoping to beat that target and local charity, Worldwide Cancer Research, will be the main charity beneficiary.

Ben McLeod commented: “It’s the experience as much as the result that counts.

“Anyone can go for a half-hour run, but it’s not every day that you get the chance to run all in white, with crowd support, the Vangelis theme playing and the promise of a fudge doughnut, ice cream or local beer as a reward!”
