A good turnout of ERNs at the popular Black Rock 5 which takes in an out-and-back run across the sands (at low tide!) of the Forth to the Black Rock from Kinghorn in Fife.
Details of the race can be found at the event website at www.blackrock5.org Well done to all.

Kinghorn really welcomes runners. When we got off the train there was loads of locals out on the street ready to cheer us on. Changing facilities at the community centre are fine, if a tad crowded. Race starts in the village and heads onto the beach out to the Black Rock and back again. We were running through about six inches of water behind the rock but that’s all part of the fun. Finish line is at the top of a very steep little hill but by the time I got there (43.03) the support was awesome. All the village kids jumping up and down cheering us on. Race is sponsored by local pub and almost all the runners adjourned to the beer garden to enjoy the free bottle of beer the pub gives us prior to purchasing more beer and a hamburger. It was a lovely balmy night and the atmosphere was superb.”
