Organisers of the new Kirkcaldy Parks Half Marathon have announced a 25 August date for what they hope will become a key fixture in the Fife running calendar.
The title of the new race is honoured in a route which includes Beveridge, Dunnikier and Ravenscraig parks. Dysart’s historic harbour and the waterfront are also course features. Organisers have playfully billed the route as 'including free hills, complemented by fast flats and downhills for that elusive PB search'.
The initial reaction to the new event has been favourable on social media with many runners remembering Kirkcaldy's previous half marathon in the 1980s.
Organisers are hoping to announce entry details soon.
