The Brighton City Race

The Brighton City Race is an urban event run under the Christmas lights of Britain's most vibrant of seaside resorts. It's a unique night-time event with a mass start and multiple gaffles to keep competitors on their toes. This year's race starts on the seafront and will use newly mapped areas to the East of the city. It takes place at 6pm on Saturday evening 16 December 2017 and is the final round of this year's South of England Orienteering League.

Rob Lines Event Organiser and member of Southdowns Orienteers, says:  "In addition to the main race, entry fees also include a Super-Sprint competition set entirely within the Brighton Lanes. The Lanes comprises an intricate network of alleyways, cut-throughs and squares and will provide a high-speed mental and physical challenge. If the weather is mild the Lanes also offers spectating opportunities for local revellers, many of whom are happy to share their thoughts on orienteering."

The Brighton City Race is always fun and offers lots of festive cheer with mince pies and refreshments at Assembly.
