Course information

The Fife course meanders through the woodlands of Beveridge Park, passing by the boating lake and the sweet-smelling Rose Garden.  The course is mainly run on paths and grass and can be steep at times. The main event site is on grass so may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic the safety of our participants, volunteers and staff is of paramount importance so for 2021 we are unable to:

Have spectators attend the event with you

Offer catering facilities onsite

Offer on the day entries

Meeting point

The start line is within Beveridge Park, on the field adjacent to Kirkcaldy Rugby Club. The nearest entrance of the park to the start line is on Abbotshall Road.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

No event parking is available. The start line is approximately a 20 minute walk from Kirkcaldy town centre and a 15 minute walk from Kirkcaldy train station. There are a number of bus services that stop just a short walk from Beveridge Park. Please use the Traveline Scotland website to plan your journey.

We recommend this event as suitable for wheelchair users with assistance. The majority of the course uses the perimeter park path however some sections are on uneven grass with some inclines, which could make conditions difficult in bad weather. The course can be adapted by keeping to the perimeter path of the park however this will significantly reduce the distance.
