The Youth Race 2020 goes virtual!Youth Race 2020 virtual event

Following the postponement of our Youth Races 2020 back in February, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all our entrants and their families for their understanding – and reveal some exciting news for the 2020 event.

Over the past few months we have been working closely with Brighton & Hove City Council to attempt to find a suitable new date for the race but unfortunately it has proven impossible due to the impact of Covid-19 affecting events across the city.

We’d love every entrant to be able to earn their finisher’s medal so we have instead planned a Virtual Youth Race, where every runner can run a mile in their own time.

We emailed every 2020 Youth Race entrant on 10th September to let them know how to take part in our virtual race. If you haven’t received your email, please get in touch at half.marathon@sussexbeacon.org.uk. You can read some FAQs about the event here.
