Kirkcaldy Parks Half Marathon
28 Aug 2022
KIRKCALDY PARKS RUNNING FESTIVAL 2022
Sponsored by Newlay (Civil Engineering Ltd)
BACK FOR 2022!!!!!
After the tremendous success of the inaugural 2019 Kirkcaldy Parks Half Marathon there was no doubt the organising committee were committed to doing it all over again!
As we all know however, the whole world was affected by the Covid-19 global pandemic and, while we staged our new 10k trail race last year, we're glad to announce that the wait is over and this year sees the return of the Half Marathon to the Kirkcaldy Parks Running Festival weekend.
Come and join us once again for Fife’s only half marathon!
Set in the historical town of Kirkcaldy, affectionately known as the ‘Lang Toun’, made famous by Michael Nairn producing linoleum and also the birthplace of Adam Smith, social philosopher and economist. This half takes in some of the town’s famous landmarks including Beveridge Park, Dunnikier Park, Ravenscraig Park, beautiful coastal path with stunning sea views and historical Dysart, including the famous harbour where ‘Outlander’ was recently filmed!
The final few miles also take in the newly refurbished Waterfront where there is a flat measured mile used for the local running clubs and walkers to enjoy.
Also included in the route are free hills; fast flats and downhills for that elusive PB search……
The race is run under UK Athletics Rules and is a Scottish Athletics permit event, minimum age on the day is 17.
The race starts at 10am within Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy on Sunday 28th August. There will be no parking available at the park, however there are car parks and bus and train links nearby, so please leave plenty of time to arrive for the race start. Parking information will be shared soon.
There will be something for all the family so even if you’re not running, we hope you’ll spend the afternoon in the park, enjoying the attractions and cheering for your runners as they cross the finish line.
Entry opens on Friday 25th March at 7pm.
Transfers must be agreed by the runners and details changed using the orginal sign up. Transfers are available up to the closing date, but it may not be possible to alter t-shirt options, depending on the date of the transfer. Please follow our Facebook page for up to date news.
Information on collection of race numbers will be updated soon.
Health and Safety
A Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) has been applied for as the race will be run on a number of closed roads managed by Traffic Management specialists and volunteer marshals.
Safety of the runners and the public is paramount and as the race is also run on open roads, runners must adhere to marshal instructions at all times and run on footpaths when necessary.
There will be a time limit of 3 hours for the race (approx 13 minutes 45 seconds per mile). Any runner who expects to take longer than this, does so at their own risk, as any organised road closures will no longer be in place.
As you should know, we are a non-profit organisation and one of our key aims is to make the running festival as inclusive as possible.
This relates to a lot of aspects of course but financial inclusivity is one of them.
Our key sponsors wholeheartedly agree on this and their generous contributions help to cover as much of the costs as possible, keeping the entry fee as low as possible.
