RISE Heroes Run 2019

Sunday 19th May, 2019

Hove seafront

Over three hundred heroes took part in a fantastic day of superhero-themed fun, and raised money for our vital children's services here in Brighton and Hove.


It was a great experience for the whole family - including dogs and pushchairs are welcome in the race! As well as fancy dress competitions for kids and adults there was even one for your pooches - and of course all of the money raised will go towards funding a RISE child therapist in 2019/20.

There were four challenges in the 2019 event:

  • 10AM: 500m Mini HEROES Dash
  • 10:15AM: Youth Mile
  • 10:40AM: Adults (ages 13+) 5k
  • 10:40AM: Adults (ages 16+) 10k


The start/finish of the HEROES RUN was near Hove Lawns. The charity village was on Hove Lawns, between First and Second Avenue.

Dressing up is all part of the fun of the HEROES RUN. We awarded prizes for:

- 1st place 10k male and 10k female (plus you get a really cool medal)
- 1st place 5k male and 5k female
- 1st place 500m Dash
- 1st place Youth Mile
- Best costume
- Best dog costume
- Best fundraiser (please note that this will be decided after the event)
