We look forward to welcoming you to the Falkland Hill Race. The Race is a challenging multi-terrain route which combines fabulous views with some of the best running trails that Fife can offer.


The Falkland Hill Race will be run as part of the Falkland Gala day and will start and finish at the main gala arena in the Tyndal Bruce Park.

The Gala will have a pipe band, various events, a bar, food outlets etc.

There will be parking available on the Gala Field and there is parking at the Falkland Memorial Hall and also at the new car-park adjacent to Pillars of Hercules. (both of these are just a 10 minute jog from the race start) Please be aware that the village is likely to be very busy, so car-share where possible and park with consideration at all times.
