Organiser's Description

All entries have been taken and the waiting list is now full. If you have a place and can no longer use it, please send us an e-mail using the contact button on Entry Central.


The Black Rock '5' is a unique road and beach race taking place at 8pm on Friday 21st June 2024 in Kinghorn. The race is approximately 7km and is timed to coincide with a sufficiently low tide to enable runners to pass behind the Black Rock which is about 1km offshore from Burntisland.

Roads on the return route will open about an hour after the race start. The event is not designed for walkers due to the fast incoming tide. If you anticipate running at a slower pace than 10mins/km we advise you not to enter our event.

Your race number with embedded timing chip will be posted to you. There is no facility to collect numbers on the night.

Please provide a mobile number with your entry. Your place and time will be sent to you by SMS on the night.

All over 18s who complete the race will receive a Williams Bros. beer, redeemable using their competitor number.

There will be a presentation ceremony at The Harbour View at about 9.30pm.
