32 Roads to close and no waiting on seven others for the Kirkcaldy half marathon.

Fifer's are being urged to check before they travel in Kirkcaldy on Sunday 25th of August.

32 roads will be affected by rolling closures in Kirkcaldy with a further seven given temporary loading and waiting restrictions.

It's for the Kirkcaldy half marathon which is coming back to the Lang Toun for the first time since 1992. 

The event starts and finishes at Kirkcaldy's Beveridge Park taking in two other parks Dystart Harbour and Kirkcaldy Waterfront, with the starting gun going off at 10am. 

Cllr Neil Crooks, Convener of the Kirkcaldy Area Committee said: “It’s fantastic to be welcoming a half marathon back into Kirkcaldy’s event calendar. It has really captured the interest of runners across Scotland and the route boasts some great landmarks.

“We look forward to welcoming a host of new visitors to the town including over 1200 runners who will pass through all three public parks, historic Dysart and harbour and enjoy the amazing panoramic view from the Waterfront across the Forth to the Lothians.

"Seeing the town for the first time in this way will hopefully whet their appetite to return for future half marathons and socially with their wider families.”
