Race day information

There are four challenges in the 2019 event:

  • Adults (ages 13+) 5k
  • Adults (ages 16+) 10k
  • 500m Mini HEROES Dash
  • Youth Mile


The start/finish of the HEROES RUN is the Lawns Cafe, by Hove Lawns.


Driving: The race post code for your sat nav is BN3 2FR. There are limited parking facilities on the sea front and nearby roads. The nearest car park is in Regency Square - BN1 2FF.

By train: Be sure to check your journey before you travel as the Brighton line is sometimes subject to engineering works at weekends. Brighton Station is 1.5 miles from the race start line, Hove Station 1.1 miles.

Help desk, toilets and baggage:

Our information desk is located close to the start/finish and opens at 9am. Toilets are also available nearby. There will also be a bag storage, staffed by volunteers. As with all races, we advise that you don't bring valuables.

Drinks stations:

Water will be offered at 5km and at Hove Lagoon. Life Water will be providing the water, in 100% recyclable bottles to protect our coastline.

Child safety:

For safety reasons, all children in the Kids 500m Dash and Youth Mile races must wear the wristband provided in your race packs. If you don't receive your race pack by the week before the race, we will have spares available on the day at the information desk.

Parents/guardians should add their names and the number of the mobile they have with them on the day to the wristbands. Then attach to the wrist of each child you are responsible for. This way if a child gets lost we can phone the number on the wristband and reunite you with them easily.

Places to win in the race:

Dressing up is all part of the fun of the HEROES RUN. We'll be awarding prizes for:

- 1st place 10k
- 1st place 5k
- 1st place 500m Dash
- 1st place Youth Mile
- Best costume
- Best group costume
- Best fundraiser (please note that this will be decided after the event)
