Hot, hot, hot…! – 14th July 2018

The hot weather certainly didn't put you guys off this morning....

Congratulations to the 184 participants who ran, jogged and/or walked the 5k. For those who track their stats there were 32 personal bests recorded across a host of times (despite the heat) but whether it took 18 minutes or 80 minutes, everyone deserves credit for completing the course. None more than today's tail-walker Derek, recovering from injury but determined to get back on track.

A big welcome to the 17 first timers who took part today - we hope you enjoyed yourselves and will become regulars in the parkrun community.

As always, a massive thanks to the 21 volunteers who gave up their time this week to make parkrun happen. Like the participants we had a great mix of first time volunteers, tourist volunteers and regular volunteers (although the other 20 could not collectively get me to start on time! no change there..)

Today's full results and a complete event history can be found on the Kirkcaldy parkrun Results Page at:

Run report, event 173, 16 June 2018

Well that turned out to be a bit of a soggy parkrun this morning.  Hopefully you have dried out now and are able to reflect on how much fun it was !

We had 168 people who ran, jogged or walked the course.

11 of you were at parkrun for the very first time, welcome to the parkrun family, hopefully you enjoyed yourselves and will keep coming back for more fun.  We also had 9 people who were visiting Kirkcaldy parkrun for the first time, we hope you come back and visit us again.

40 of you set personal best times this morning, absolutely brilliant, well done.

Each and every volunteer was amazing today - massive thanks to all of you, parkrun  wouldn't have happened without you all. The volunteer team today was  Andrew AIRD • Sandy BELL • Gail MCNAB • Jacquie LEIGH • Fiona THORNTON • Graham LAW • Janet TELFORD • Peter TELFORD • George MACDONALD • Laura GODDING • Rob TELFORD • Liz HUTCHISON • Nicola STEWART • Gillian NOTMAN • William LAW • Amy SMITH • Lorraine DAVIE • Keith TRAILL • Thomas SMITH • Janet HENRY • Sarah DEIGHAN • Natalie FRIEL • Jodie CARTER

In particular a shout out to Telford family who are visiting Fife from Durham for the weekend and were on marshal/barcode scanning duty as part of their trip - parkrun dedication indeed.

Remember we need volunteers every week, don't be shy, come along and try it, no role is difficult and your run director will give you training beforehand.

REMINDER ABOUT NEXT WEEK - there is no parkrun at Kirkcaldy next week due to another event in the park and if you were thinking of heading to Dunfermline instead that is also cancelled due another event there.

And finally good luck to all running in Glenrothes 10k tomorrow and any other event across the weekend.

Andrew, Run Director
