Starting from an iconic spot under the arches of Brighton's Madeira Drive, these fancy dress 5k and 10k events will have the 'fun run' feel, with the emphasis on enjoyment and fun, but with chip timing for those who want to know if they've improved. The Half Marathon, for athletes who want to stretch themselves, will follow most of the same course but extend out along Madeira Drive.
Run, dance, sing your way around to the live entertainment along the beachfront covering a variety of musical genres, and combine two of Brighton's biggest loves - music and running.
