A pair of unusual evening running events

In the past two weekends I’ve had two of the most unusual but fun night’s running…

Friday May 4th – the Blackrock 5 – the best running race in the Edinburgh area by a long way…. this race is run every year on a friday night at low tide, from the village of Kinghorn, out into the Forth Estuary and around the Black Rock and back to a killer uphill finish. All finishers get given a banana and bottle of beer and the rest of the evening is spent with more beers and chips from the chip shop 🙂




Sunday April 29th – training for NVA’s speed of light – a bitterly cold night on Arthur’s seat trying out light suits and the choreography for this participatory public art project to take place in August.
