Kirkcaldy Parks 10k Trail Race 2022

27 Aug 2022

Organiser's Description

KIRKCALDY PARKS RUNNING FESTIVAL 2022 

10k TRAIL RUNNING RACE 

Sponsored by Premier Linktown

 

BALLOT NOW OPEN (note: it may show as 'full' until the ballot is drawn)

 

We're back! and raring to go with the 2022 Running Festival.

 

Alongside the Half Marathon that started us off in 2019, we had a terrific response to our 10k trail event last year and we're delighted to be doing it all over again in 2022 with both events happening over 2 days on the same weekend.

 

Race HQ and the start will be within beautiful Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy (former host to racing for Formula 3 cars and motorcycles!).

You will run in and around the magical Wizard’s Walk (home of famous running club the Kirkcaldy Wizards) and if you are lucky enough, you may even catch a glimpse of Wizard Michael yourself!

You will then be taken on an “undulating” tour of the beautiful Raith Estate, which dates back to the 17th century before returning to Beveridge Park. 

The route will be a mix of grass, tarmac, gravel, soft trail and field edge so consideration must be given to the appropriate footwear.

This is not the hardest 10k route in Scotland but it is also not the easiest and must be given the respect it deserves. Elevation gain will be in the region of 500-600ft. 

 

The race will be run under UK Athletics Rules and will be a Scottish Athletics permit event. 

 

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. 

 

A big thank you to all our sponsors:

•          Premier Linktown

•          The Ford Centre

•          The Duchess of Kirkcaldy

•          D&G Autocare (Kirkcaldy)

•          Morton Napier Real Estate

•          Home of Hopcroft

•          Strive

 

 

START 

The race will start at 2pm within Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy. 

We ask all runners, marshals and helpers to NOT park in the main car park, but to leave this free for other park users.

There will be ample parking at the nearby Balwearie High School. Parking information will be shared soon. 

There are also plenty of bus and rail links nearby, so please leave plenty of time to arrive for the race start.

Please check with the park and/or Fife Council regarding access to facilities/toilets in or around the park on this day. 

 

ENTRIES 

Entry opens on Friday 25th March at 7pm. 

Due to the expected high demand and limited spaces, we shall be operating a ballot system for entry, whereby you join a waiting list until the ballot is drawn.

Online entry will remain open for 1 week after which it will close and the event places shall be picked randomly and automatically by the Entry Central random ballot system.

Once places are allocated, you will have 48 hours to accept and pay or decline the space. This action is not reversable, so don't miss out! 

Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds or deferrals - this is non-negotiable.

 

TRANSFERS 

Should you not be able to make the race for any reason you may be able to transfer your place to another runner, after the ballot has been drawn.

Runners must agree transfers and details changed using the original sign up.

Transfers will be available up to a closing date, but it may not be possible to alter t-shirt options, depending on the date of the transfer.

You will be notified of this date in advance (please keep a check on our Facebook page for updates.

Runners will have to sort out payment between themselves; this is not a function of KPRF or Entry Central due to banking privacy laws. We hope you understand. 

 

REGISTRATION 

Information on collection of race numbers will be posted soon. 

 

HEALTH AND SAFETY 

Safety of the runners and the public is paramount to us; therefore, runners must adhere to marshal instructions at all times.

There will be a time limit of 2 hours for the race (approx. 19 minutes per mile).

Runners who expect to take longer than this are still welcome to attend and will receive t-shirt and medal upon completion; however, we cannot guarantee an official time after this point. 

 

Any questions regarding any of this should be directed to kphalfmara@outlook.com where we will respond asap.
