Why not take part in the first ever 5km Rainbow Run in Brighton and Hove! This fun event will take place at 7pm on Friday 5 August 2022 - the same weekend as Brighton and Hove Pride - ideal for those wanting to include it as part of their pride celebrations. The 5km Rainbow Run will take place in Hove Park, just a short walk from Hove train station and the seafront. We will be creating a festival/party atmosphere, which will make this a memorable and fun event with lots of colour, live DJ sets, drag queens and other entertainers.
We are encouraging runners of all abilities to join us from the local community, our running friends in Brighton and Hove and new friends from outside of town.
The run will be timed and all finishers will be awarded with a bespoke Rainbow Run medal. Prizes will be awarded to the top male, female and non-binary runners. Results will be available to view online after the event.
In addition, special prizes will be awarded to the best fancy dress, so don your best colourful and sparkly pride outfit for the run!
This event is being organised by Brighton & Hove Frontrunners – a non-for-profit local community running club which is made up of a friendly group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LBGTQ+) runners.
