The race starts at 8.30am next to the Eastbourne Bandstand and the route takes in much of the glorious seafront.

Race Directors Liz Lumber and Sue Fry are excited to host the 10k for the fourth year. “Our goal is to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable run while supporting local charity Matthew 25 Mission.”
