This year's City Race takes place on the same evening as Brighton's annual parade Burning the Clocks. The parade attracts upwards of 10,000 spectators and the city becomes busy in the early evening. For this reason, the start time of the city race has been brought forward by two hours and the race will start in the west of the city. Prizegiving for the city race will take place at 18.15 and participants will be able to watch the parade which passes close to Assembly 25 minutes later. More information about Burning the Clocks can be found by following the link.
Assembly for the Brighton City Race will be at Middle Street School and will open at 15.00. All participants should aim to arrive at the school by 15.30 to attend a briefing and to pick up their numbered bibs. Toilets and refreshments will be available. There are separate starts for juniors and adult competitors. Adults will take the 16.32 train from Brighton station to a start location in Hove. The junior start will be at 17.00, close to Assembly.
There will be a limited clothing dump at Hove station, with transport provided to take light apparel back to Brighton. The finish for all courses will be near to Assembly. For adult competitors, the run will take 40-60 minutes to complete with course lengths from 10km-4km depending on age class. Each course will feature 15-25 checkpoints that will need to be visited somewhere en route between Hove and Brighton. More information to follow, with final details available one week ahead of the competition. Fees are £10 (£5 U25s) until 7 December 2019. Late entry fees are £11 (£5) until 14 December 2019. After that entries will be £12 (£6) whilst maps remain available.
Entries are now open at Fabian4 and the 2019 running of the Brighton City Race promises to be a memorable night out for all.
