Kirkcaldy Online Walking Festival 2020
Each year, Kirkcaldy Walking Festival brings together local groups and organisations from around Kirkcaldy to run a variety of activities, encouraging people to walk in their local community, get active and bring people together to enjoy different aspects of Kirkcaldy and Dysart.
Kirkcaldy Online Walking Festival took place from Saturday 1st to Sunday 9th August 2020.
With restrictions on gatherings still in place, the Festival 2020 was an online event. We asked a number of local organisations to share their favourite walks around the town and have made them available for download, so you can walk them in your own time. Thanks to Fife ABE, Homestart, Bums Off Seats, Kirkcaldy Ramblers, Fife Walking, Seafield Environmental Group , Walk On Kirkcaldy and Tony Wilson for providing routes.
The routes can be downloaded from the programme document by clicking the link below. You can simply follow the routes online, but if you want full functionality, such as a navigation function, you may prefer to download the route walking app to your phone. The two apps we are using are Viewranger and Komoot which can be downloaded from Google Play Store and Apple App Store free of charge. You do not have to pay to download any maps, so please decline or ignore any requests for payment.
Could you spare a couple of minutes to take our survey? We would love to hear your thoughts on walking. You can contribute even if you haven’t walked any of the festival programme routes. This feedback will help us to improve future events, will allow us to make positive changes to the programme and to report to our funders. You can take the survey here.
Congratulations to John Murray and Susan Cotton who won our Creative and Walking Marathon competitions respectively. John’s winning entry was a beautifully composed image of Dysart (see below) and Susan completed an incredible 133,953 steps, a distance of about 60 miles, during the festival week! Well done to you both, prizes are in the post!
