Help Celebrate Dunfermline's Silver Jubilee


2010 sees the 25th Anniversary of the first Dunfermline half marathon, staged in 1985, and entries are now open.

The Scottish National Half Marathon Championships will be held in Dunfermline for the seventh consecutive year. In addition, the Half Marathon will also feature as one of only six events in the prestigious Stewarts Grand Prix series.

As the Scottish representative on the UK Athletics home international circuit, Dunfermline will host the first UK home international challenge. There will be invitations going out around the world for teams to take part from Europe, North America and Africa. In this special year Dunfermline is really going places!

The Half Marathon also features a fast new course for 2010, with the start and finish still located in the picturesque Pittencrieff Park, now rated one of the top two Scottish Tourist Board parks in Scotland, in itself a great reason to be there! Andrew Carnegie would be proud of this status. The Half Marathon takes place on Sunday June 13, starting at 11am.
