SEOULBrighton City RaceSat 16 December, 2023

Near: Brighton
Level of event: Regional
Type of event: Race, Night, Urban, Social, Coaching, Juniors



As you may have heard Rob announce, this year's event marks the end of an era. Rob and I have greatly enjoyed pitting you against the environs and seasonal revellers of nighttime Brighton and Hove and over the years have tried a variety of different methods for splitting runners up. However we feel that the event has run its course, it's left many great memories but it's time to move on. There will be no BCR in 2024 but plans are afoot for something different in December 2025.
