Martlets, Rockinghorse and the music charity Rhythmix have signed up as official charity partners for this year’s Brighton Run2Music fundraising event.

THE event, which will take place on Saturday, May 11 on Madeira Drive, is being organised by the team behind Brighton and Hove Triathlon, many of whom have worked on Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Brighton Run2Music Race Director John Lunt said; “What makes this event so appealing is the three different distances – 5k, 10k and 21k and all the entertainment we have on offer before and during the race. With dancers, cheerleaders, Live DJs and musicians, this really is a fun, community event and ties in really well with our chosen partners, Rhythmix, Martlets and Rockinghorse.” 


Mark Davyd, Rhythmix CEO added; “We are delighted to be partnering with Brighton Run2Music for this year’s event, which coincides with the 20th anniversary of Rhythmix. In the last twenty years we have supported thousands of people with music at some of the most challenging times in their lives; dealing with ill health, tackling dementia, facing mental health issues.” 

Martlets’ Director of Income Generation Sally Brighton said; “Martlets is delighted to be partnering with Brighton Run2Music in this exciting fundraising venture. Martlets is at the heart of Brighton and Hove and we hope this partnership will raise vital funds to help us provide life-changing hospice care for the local community. Being part of Brighton Run2Music combines for us everything we love about this vibrant city and we look forward to dancing, running and having fun to help people living with a terminal illness.”

Brighton Run2Music encourages people of all ages and genders to run together listening to live music on big speakers along the course while embracing the spirit of Brighton’s two loves – Music and running!

Participants are encouraged to dress as their favourite pop star or musical icon and run 5k, 10k or 21k.

Runners will be entertained by a live DJ, dancers, gymnasts, bands and musicians along the route and there will be prizes for the best fancy dress.
