And nearby, at Kinross, news of a 2.5 km loop being constructed, specifically to be suitable for parkrun Link (roll over me to see where I go)

Will this be the first purpose-built parkrun course?

Yes, the owner at Loch Leven Larder is a runner and has been very supportive of having a parkrun from there. It will be great. Loch Leven is beautiful and the Larder will make a good venue for those wanting coffee and cake after.

Going to pop along to Lochore Meadows inaugural this weekend, if I can. Will be my closest (not much closer than Dunfermline) and flattest (much, much flatter than Dunfermline! And even a bit flatter than Kirkcaldy, which is further away). Yay! :-) G

Lol Dv. You suggesting the Courier isn't the font of all knowledge. A simple read of History and parkrun web would probably have told them 2006 in Busy (or whatever it was - I haven't bothered to Google, Wikipedia or parkrun.org it either. But then I'm not a paid journo!) :-) G

UK inaugural parkruns.

Please note that the details below are just what is picked-up from the interweb. It cannot be guaranteed that the date of the start is actually correct until an official parkrun page is launched.

Please consider if attending an inaugural event is the right thing for you, the local team may ideally prefer a low-key start with small numbers.
