Keep going down the hill onto West Street until you hit the beach. Turn west along the seafront along the esplanade for 0.9 miles until you reach the Hove Lawns. The start line is next to the Lawns Cafe. For more information about train journeys and times to Brighton please go to

It is essential that you arrive in good time. There are limited parking facilities on the seafront. The nearest car park is in Regency Square - BN1 2FF.  We are encouraging people to take public transport or to walk.

Enquiries and Facilities
The HEROES RUN Information desk is on the Hove Lawn closest to the Lawns Cafe. There will be an information desk for general enquiries. Toilets are also available nearby. Bag storage is available in the event marquee.

For safety reasons, all children in the Kids 500m Dash and Youth Mile races MUST wear the wrist band provided in your pack. We will also have plenty of spare wrist bands on the day for those collecting their race numbers (all runners who entered after 28th April 2016) / those who have lost their bands. All you need to do  is write the name of the child and your mobile number on both wrist bands provided, give one to your child and keep one for yourself. This enables marshalls to identify you as the parent / guardian of your child once the race is over.
10.40 am   The 5km and 10km HEROES v VILLAINS race starts.
12.00 pm   Costume and race winner’s presentation on the stage in the Info tent.
Please be ready to run no later than 20 mins before your race starts. British Military Fitness will perform the pre race warm up. The race officials will walk out/direct runners from the Information tent to the start line shortly before the start.

HEROES v VILLAINS - How will it work?
The concept is simple: On race day, there will be a line of barriers running up to the start line. HEROES will gather on one side, the VILLAINS on the other. Both teams will be set off at the same time so its a simple race to  the finish. When you finish your race, you simply follow either the “HERO” or “VILLAIN” signs to collect your medal (marshalls will be there to guide you).  Please keep moving once you have crossed the line and clear the finish area as soon as possible. In both the 5km and the 10km race, the first team to run out of medals wins!

The Route
The START/FINISH line is next to the Lawns Cafe and approximately 150 metres from the Information tent and toilets on Hove Lawns. The route is an interesting community fun run where you will get to see and be seen by the rest of the Superhero and Hero themed race field.  The race finishes where it starts. When you go over the finish line you will be awarded your race medal.  The 5km is one lap and the 10km is two. For a full course description please visit the course maps on the HEROES RUN website

Drinks Station
Water will be available after approximately 1k / 4k, again at 6k / 9k and at the finish.
