Last Duel Trail Race

Runners Go Head To Head

Let battle commence in Fife this September...

Get set to do battle in the Kingdom of Fife with news that entries have opened for another edition of Fife AC and Kirkcaldy Wizards' The Last Duel Trail Race.

Taking place on 22 September, the technical trail race is approximately 5.7 miles long with a route that takes runners past the location where the last pistol duel in Scotland took place on 23 August 1826, almost 200 years ago!

Speaking about their event, organisers said: "Grab your trainers and join us for a trail run experience you will never forget. Swap the tarmac for a unique opportunity to run this amazing and exciting route."

The route incorporates the woods around Cardenden where runners will experience an amazing mixture of trail and woodland with quickly changing terrain. It has proved to be an excellent route for runners of all abilities with organisers emphasising that experienced hill and trail runners will not be disappointed.

They say: "You will run under the dual carriageway, over a small timber bridge, slalom around trees and much more. If you haven’t been to Cardenden Woods, you will be in for a treat.

Trail shoes are recommended as the course is mainly off-road (very off-road in places), and often muddy, rocky or rooted. It's a 'proper' challenging off-road race. Every runner will receive a unique medal at the end of the race at the Corrie Centre.
