- There is limited parking on the grass by the Community Centre, however if you are arriving in plenty of time we would recommend parking in the multi-storey car park at the Ferrytoll Park and Ride (Hope Street, Inverkeithing KY11 1HN). The Ferrytoll Park and Ride is a 15 minute walk from North Queensferry Community Centre so please leave yourself sufficient time.
- To access the NQ Community Centre from the Park and Ride head towards the Forth Road Bridge using the pavement that runs alongside the motorway. To the left of the bus stop just before you reach the bridge is a set of stairs that take you up to North Queensferry. At the top of the stairs follow the path that passes the playpark and the community centre is on your right.
Limited changing is available within the Community Centre. There are no showering facilities. The organisers accept no responsibility for loss of clothing or equipment.
The race starts outside North Queensferry Community Centre and finishes at the North end of the Forth Road Bridge.
Please assemble at the start point by 10:20am.
Note the start is quite tight so please start at the marker relative to your predicted finish time.
The course follows an undulating route through North Queensferry and down to Jamestown where you will now encounter an "out and back" section of approximately 600m, before heading out over the Eastern walkway of the Bridge. The course then heads down the service road that heads under the bridge emerging on the West walkway whereby you head North back across the bridge to finish at the Fife Bridgehead.
Please clear the finish area as soon as you can, as you will be standing close to high speed traffic. Spectators can have a good view of the finish from the steps leading up to the Community Centre. Return to the changing area and your car by using the steps leading down and under the bridge, again this will be signposted. Unfortunately the race is unsuitable for wheelchairs.
There will be a water station small bottles on the course at approximately 7K. PLease dispose of these carefully. Do not drop themeither on or over the bridge. Bottled water will be available at the finish of the race. Further refreshments of sandwiches, cakes, tea & coffee will be available within the Community Centre.
The prize giving will take place as soon as all of the results are compiled by PB Timing. We have a whole host of individual prizes across a range of age categories, as well as male and female team prizes, so please make sure and stay around for the prize giving.
