The Brooks Brighton 10K Race

By Tom Copeland

This Sunday morning (18 November) Brighton seafront will once again host the annual Brooks Brighton 10K.

The ten kilometre race will start and finish on Madeira Drive, which is located at the seafront to the east side of Brighton Pier, at 10am sharp. Runners should be assembled at the start line by 9.50am, in a starting position relative to where they realistically expect to finish.

The route takes runners east to the first turn before heading back down past the pier and arches to the second turn at six-and-a-half kilometres. From there it is a straight run back to the finish line to rapturous applause and to collect a medal.

Last year’s event was won by Ben Whitby, running for Windsor Slough Eton and Hounslow, in a time of 29 minutes 52 seconds.

The course record was set by Rob Denmark in 1993, who recorded a blistering 28.59, and Louise Damon holds the fastest time for women of 33.14.
