Organiser's Description

The start line data has been sent to the race timing company to process the posting out of the race numbers. Post commenced Monday 22nd and was completed Tuesday 23rd May.

The data is now closed and no further swaps can be processed.

The Black Rock '5' is a unique road and beach race taking place at 7.45pm on Friday 2nd June 2023 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 after about an hour after the race start. The event is not designed for walkers due to fast incoming tide. If you anticipate running at a slower pace than 10mins/km we advise you not to enter our event.

Please provide a mobile number with your entry. Your place and time will be sent to you by SMS on the night. Your race number with embedded timing chip will be posted to you. There is no facility to collect numbers 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 Carousel/ Harbour View at about 9.30pm.
