Route information
Open to runners and wheelchair participants, this Wings for Life World Run will take you along scenic Hove Promenade in Brighton. In this unique, global event, you'll run side by side with other competitors to stay ahead of the Virtual Catcher Car. This is the perfect opportunity to bring your friends along and see how many laps of the course you can complete before the car chases you down!
The race will start at 12:00, with the Virtual Catcher Car taking off after 30 minutes at a speed of 14km per hour. The car will steadily increase its speed until the last athletes have been caught.
You'll be able to enjoy uninterrupted sea views as you run the 2.5k loop along the Promenade from Hove Lawns. The course is flat, following a super-wide flat, tarmac pathway which is ideal for both wheelchair users and buggies.
