Youth Race


Brighton Half Youth Race 2017

Our Youth Race runners will run 1 mile on the course of the Half Marathon route, finishing to glory on the finish line of the main race on Madeira Drive, Brighton. The race is a unique and fun chance for athletes in the making to experience the buzz of a big race.

There are four age categories:

7-10 years old

11-12 years old

13-14 years old

15-17 years old

Each runner will receive a free technical T-shirt, a fantastic finisher’s medal and a goody bag, plus the winners (first, second and third) of each age category will win some brilliant prizes too.

There will be a dedicated Youth Race marquee in the race village for families, plus presentations and a photo call after the race for all runners.

We’re very pleased that the 2017 race is being delivered once again by Nick Rivett Sport and The Run Squad. Their team of 50+ volunteers will help to make a fun-packed morning of running for all our youth runners.

New for 2017 we are pleased to announce that Albion in the Community will be joining us as our Youth Race Charity Partner. So as well as running one mile you can help fundraise for this local charity too.

Albion in the Community is the official charity of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club. It regularly works with more than 130 local schools and 61 projects across Sussex delivering pioneering health, wellbeing and social inclusion programmes.

We are very excited about this partnership which creates what we believe will be a fantastic relationship based on our shared passion for both sport and charity.
