This Week’s Race Results

Each week we feature the results for FrontRunners who have taken part in a race or Parkrun the week before. After taking a break on reporting for Christmas, we are back with our weekly round-up of results. The New Year provided an opportunity to run three Parkrun in one week, with a few eager FrontRunners also managing to complete the cheeky double at Hove Prom then Hove Park on New Year’s Day.

Bevendean Parkrun Results

Our Parkrun tour took us to Bevendean Down, a hilly course run entirely on grass, on a fine, cold, windy morning, we had cows and horses to contend with along the course. Which of course made it all a little bit more interesting, especially when the 2 lead runners seemed to run in different directions having a different idea of the course route.

We had 6 runners come out for the run, which was a 6th of the total amount of runners. With one of our members winning the event, and 4 in the top 10.

We will be meeting at our usual location at the beach shelter nearest to the entrance to the King Alfred Leisure Centre car park at 7pm.

Want to run over Christmas? Events to keep you entertained

With our Wednesday runs now over until 2nd January 2019, here are your handy tips to keep running over the festive break:

  • Join one of the special Christmas day Parkruns taking place around the country. A few FrontRunners will be hitting Preston Park at 9:00am or Peacehaven at 9:30am
  • Our monthly Parkrun Series will still go ahead on the last Saturday of every month, our December Parkrun will see us hitting the hilly Bevendean Parkrun on Saturday 29th December. Trail shoes are recommended and prepare to get wet and muddy.
  • Special New Year’s Day Parkruns will be taking place around Brighton. A couple of FrontRunners are planning to do the double – Hove Prom at 9:00am followed by Hove Park at 10:30am.

Last few Beginner’s Group places remaining

Thinking of joining our January 2019 Beginner’s Group? We only have a few places remaining!

Our beginners group is for gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ+) people who would like to build the confidence to run 5km continuously without stopping. You can read more about our Couch to 5km Beginner’s Group here.

If you have already signed up, you should have received your first welcome email with information about the group. If you haven’t please check your junk mail folder.

Numbers on our Beginner’s Group are limited to ensure there are enough volunteers to support all new runners. We expect all places to go before the New Year, so if you are interested in joining, make sure you sign up as soon as possible. Once all spaces are taken we will be starting a waiting list.

Already can run 5km confidently? Why not join our Wednesday night club runs – our next run will be Wednesday 2nd January.


This week: Our final Wednesday run of 2018!

Wednesday 19th December is our final Wednesday evening club run for 2018.

As the last one of the year, rather than our normal club run, we will be mixing it up with some fun running games along the promenade. Meet as usual at 7pm at the Beach Shelter on Hove Street, entrance to King Alfred Car Park.

We will be having informal Christmas drinks after the run. All welcome.

Our normal club runs will be back on 2nd January 2019.
