Calling all 7-17 year olds…




Entry to the Brighton Half Marathon Youth Races opened today, a chance for young runners aged 7 – 17 to run a mile on the morning of the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon on 22 February 2015 and experience the atmosphere of a big race.

The 1 Mile Youth Races start and finish on Madeira Drive on Brighton’s seafront and the route takes in the famous city sights of the Brighton Wheel, Sea Life Centre and Brighton Pier.

A total of 500 places are available and the age groups are 7-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15-17 years, with each age category starting in its own wave. The first wave starts at 9:20am, after the start of the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon at 9am.

Open to all abilities, registration to the Youth Races costs £7 (+£1 booking fee). Each runner will have their race electronically chip timed and will receive a free goody bag and medal at the finish line.

The Youth Races provide a unique showcase for emerging local talent, and prizes will be awarded to the three fastest girls and boys in each age group.

Entries close on Friday 19 December or when sold out. Register now at
