Saturday the 6th of January, 2018
The race will start at 7.00PM
We suggest arriving at least an hour prior to the race start to ensure you have time to put your belongings in the bag drop area, use the toilets and familiarise yourself with the course and start/finish areas.
EVERY RUNNER WILL RECEIVE:
- Neon accessories
- Race stickers
- Chip timing
- Bag storage
- A pre-race warm-up
- First aid station
- Vibrancy, energy and a memorable experience!
Please be aware that the race will be run in the evening (we know this is obvious but we want to be sure everybody realises this!) so visibility will be greatly reduced throughout the event. Your safety matters so make sure that you stay alert and pay extra attention to your footing, direction, cones, kerbs and any other potential hazards whilst at the event. There will be a clear course map close to the starting line, so please familiarise yourself with where you will be running, prior to starting the race.
The race will start by Hove St and head out towards Brighton Pier before looping back and finishing back by the lawns. The course is entirely flat and on road/pavement. Download the course route here.
We encourage all runners to help raise money for their favourite charities. Not only will you get the satisfaction of running a new personal best or completing your first race, you will also feel humbled for helping charities. Find our more in our fundraising section.
TDC (Trust for Developing Communities) supports people living in deprived areas of Brighton and Hove. We bring individuals together into groups, then provide training, counselling, help accessing services and assistance with funding applications so that groups can become strong, healthy, supportive and self-sufficient. It is a process that helps vulnerable people change their futures, but also helps to stem the escalation of social issues across the whole city. Run for a better Brighton for everyone. Run for TDC.
