As the race enters its fourth decade in 2021, we’ve had a bit of revamp in the style stakes. We want the event branding to really get to the heart of our event: colourful, quirky and quintessentially Brighton!
Seagulls are a sight you’ll spot within a few seconds of arriving in the seafront city and the bird takes pride of place in our new logo. The gull’s name is of course ’Beaky’ – a nod to the fact that the event is organised by local charity The Sussex Beacon and event proceeds each year go directly to help those living with HIV.
A changing running scene since this year’s event
Since we held our 30th anniversary race back in February this year, the running scene has changed dramatically and in ways we could never have imagined at the start of the year. We were very fortunate that we were able to hold the 2020 race, and our heart goes out to fellow event organisers – and runners taking part in these events – who have faced such an unpredictable path over the past few months.
We know how much running and exercise means to so many people and if lockdown has shown us one thing, it is that people who may not have run regularly for many years have taken the opportunity to dust down their trainers and head outdoors.
The beauty of running is that it can of course be a solitary sport. We hope you have managed to keep running during uncertain times.
Take care and we hope to see you on the start line in 2021.
