Brighton has long been the place to get the pulse racing on the South coast and runners are spoilt for choice with an iconic promenade that features in the massive marathon, half marathon and 10k races. However, organisers Goldline Events have something different to offer with the second goGIRL (Brighton & Hove) evening 5k run and beach party, which will be held on Friday 16 June 2017.
It’s time to rally your girlfriends to take to the seafront for this 5k race and after-party like no other. The event will see hundreds of ladies join together to run the flat and fast 5k course, which was won last month by Cathy Ulliott, of Brighton & Hove AC, in a time of 20min43sec.
Runner, Claudia Marquez commented after the race: “The course was excellent, flat and I really enjoyed running around the lagoon. The food and drinks at the after party were amazing! My little girl and husband came to support and they had lots of fun, too. The music, not only on stage but along the course was great. This race is going to be a must for next year for sure!”
Judith Manson at Goldline Events said: “After an amazing first goGIRL event we were thrilled by the feedback we received from runners like Claudia and are excited to launch the 2017 event so soon. Although the 5k race is aimed at ladies only, men and families are encouraged to come along to cheer their wives, partners, family members and friends across the finish line.”
Runners and their families can soak up the summer evening atmosphere with live music, fire shows, stilt walkers plus great food and drink in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Judith adds: “Unlike other races, we want to encourage runners and their friends to hang out once they've crossed the finish line, the perfect way to end a busy week and kick off the weekend. Goldline Events supports the nationwide Sport England campaign #thisgirlcan and we hope that our event will help to encourage more women to take part in and enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.”
