The organiser of the Grand Brighton Half Marathon is advising runners to sign up soon as general entry places are nearly full.

The 13.1-miler will take place on Sunday, February 24, with the route taking in city landmarks such as the Royal Pavilion and the i360.

Brighton-based charity The Sussex Beacon, which provides support and care for those living with HIV through inpatient and outpatient services, organises the event.

Race director Martin Harrigan said: “As the race approaches sell out, we’re advising all runners interested in joining us on February 24 to register soon to avoid disappointment.

"Unlike some other races, we never re-open for general entries so this is a last chance to enter.

"The 2019 race promises once again to be a great celebration of running in the city and we welcome runners of all abilities and wheelchair racers to our 2019 event.”
