The Halloween Fun Run Brings 160 Ghoulish Runners to the Sussex Coast in Aid of The Sussex Beacon

160 runners from age 5 to 72 ran, jogged, and walked along the seafront of Brighton beach on an unseasonably warm October weekend.

The first edition of the Halloween Fun Run was met with big smiles in the Brighton sunshine, and a fabulous array of costumes. From witches to werewolves, from skeletons to the Statue of Liberty, the participants made us smile with every step of the 5k run.

This event was set up and organized by E3 events, and we couldn’t be happier with how it went; especially in its first year! We would like to extend warm thanks to everyone who came along. Your fundraising efforts will be going towards a fantastic local charity; The Sussex Beacon.

The Help Desk for those signing up on the day opened at 10:00 AM, but many people had arrived early, keen to enjoy the weekend sunshine with their families. As more and more runners arrived, we were thrilled to see the effort that had gone in to each and every costume. We at E3 had spent a lot of time working on this event, so it was truly heartwarming to see that all the participants had done the same. Our thanks go out to each of you.

With the run completed, the medals awarded, and the goody-bags given out, it was time to say goodbye to everyone and begin packing up. The team at E3 would like to thank all of the volunteers who gave up their time to help us, particularly our friends at The Sussex Beacon and The Brighton Academy. Events like these involve a lot of setting up and packing up, and this would not have been possible without a fantastic and well organised team

David Hill of E3 said after the event, ‘we’ve had a fantastic time here today, and we loved putting this event together for local families. Based on the feedback we’ve had, this will be the first of many Halloween Fun Runs to come!’

E3 are proud to have produced this fantastic event.
