What’s On Directory

The “What’s On” listings below represent our pick of the events taking place in St Andrews and surrounding area over the coming weeks and months.

These are just a few of the wide selection of events on offer in St Andrews. For a more comprehensive list, we recommend a visit to the excellent Event St Andrews website - this is a superb, independently-compiled comprehensive list of occasions large and small, and is especially good for community and University events.

Very occasionally, event organisers have to change arrangements at the last minute – so before travelling any distance, we always recommend you contact the individual event directly to check that it is still going ahead as planned. Our Facebook and Twitter pages are another excellent way of hearing about any late changes.

Chariots of Fire Beach Race

Now in its fourth year, Sunday 1st June 2014 sees the return of Chariots on the silver sands of St Andrews. Join in for  fun day on the beach, celebrating St Andrews’ cinematic past. Chariots 2014 once again gives you the chance to run resplendent all in white on the very same sands that featured in the film Chariots of Fire, and so memorably with Rowan Atkinson as Mr Bean at the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, complete with the memorable soundtrack that we’ve all played in our heads at one point or another…

The charity partner to this year’s run is the Association for International Cancer Research which is based in St Andrews.

As if this isn’t fun enough, last year’s participants received a Fisher and Donaldson fudge doughnut on crossing the finish line!
