Welcome to the 8th Brighton City Race - 6.30pm Saturday 16 December 2017

The main event is a 10Km race between checkpoints located around the seafront and city centre. The competition will visit many of the city’s top attractions as well as the famous Brighton Lanes. There are junior and age class courses of various distances, making the event ideal for novices as well as experienced runners. 

Last year's (2016) details: 

The event will start next to Brighton Station, with the senior courses heading out to newly mapped areas. A clothing transfer will be available back to the finish/assembly at Middle Street School. The junior race will be run entirely within the Brighton Lanes. The event is the final round of the South of England Orienteering League and prize giving will take place at 8pm.
