162nd Famous Alva Games.

About 162nd Famous Alva Games.

Location: Johnstone Park, Alva FK12 5LJ

We are delighted to welcome you to the website of the Famous Alva Games. Alva Games are the last surviving sports and games to be run in Clackmannanshire. Looking forward to the next annual renewal of the meeting, always held on the second Saturday in July and the highlight of the summer’s events in the county, the games feature 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.

We are joined on the day by the Alloa Bowmar Pipe Band who will lead the Guests into the arena just before 1pm and will play again at the interval.

We also have, during the half time interval, hotly contested "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.The traditional fun fair operates every evening from the Wednesday prior to the games from 6pm until 10pm daily and on games day itself from 12 noon.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 162nd Famous Alva Games. are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
