Brooks Brighton 10k - now live

The Race Gallery for the 28th Brooks Brighton 10k is now live and online here with over 23,000 images:

The race results and information are available here:

A record start number of 2724 willing participants lined up for near-perfect conditions along the south coast on Brightons Madeira Drive for a quick trip to the Marina, no stopping for shopping, back past the pier to check out the tea and coffee on the Kings Lawns and then a short stride back to the Finish line ready for fish and chips and a well earnt drink.

This years winner was Ben Whitby from Windsor Slough and Eton who did the grand tour in 29:52 (only 33 seconds off last years fast time), and the womens winner was the pre-race favourite Agnieszka Ciolek in 33:30 16 seconds off last years course record.

A full report of the race is here on the Sussex AA website:

This is basically the flattest fastest and most PB'able course that we cover - so I hope you can find yourself your best PB face photo to keep as a lasting memory !

Apologies for the vast number of photos below, but well, its fun.

 Many thanks to the Scouts who did a great job with flyers at the end of the race to tell everyone about the race photos. We managed to put over 23,000 online in the gallery for you to see - so I hope you all get a chance to see your PB faces !

Big hello to Chris Carter and all the team from Brighton and Hove City athletic club that make this event possible and inviting us to cover the race every year for the past 8 years.

Until next time
