INSTEAD OF THE BRIGHTON PHOENIX 10K SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY 15 JULY WE PLAN TO HOLD A VIRTUAL 10K.
The tenth Brighton Phoenix 10km has been cancelled due to COVID-19, so we are going virtual for 2020. We would like to invite you to help raise money for our nominated charity, The Clock Tower Sanctuary who help young homeless people in Brighton.
How it will work
You may choose your route but it should be run on a neutral course; an out and back or closed loop.
Please time/record the run yourself. You will need to be able to submit your time using a link to your Garmin or Strava record.
Please be respectful to others and follow Government guidelines on social distancing and exercise.
This event is run at your own risk; keep it fun and safe.
How to enter
Race entry is cheap but we'd like runners to make a donation to the Clock Tower Sanctuary.

Celebrating the success of the event
Please send any stories of what this event has meant to you, together with any photos you may have, to Twitter @brightonphoenix and @Phoenix_10K or to the Brighton Phoenix facebook group.
The club hosts the Phoenix 10K on the third week's Wednesday evening in July - next race is 14 July 2021. This is our flagship club race and many of our members either marshal or run it themselves. As an amateur athletics club any funds raised go back into club to help with the development of our young and old athletes alike. Phoenix believe that it is important to be an integral part of the community and as such part of the funds raised go to our partner charity, the Brighton-based The Clock Tower Sanctuary.
The course is an out-and-back, fast course; the race runs west towards Shoreham on the promenade. After Hove Lagoon, the course meets Basin Road South. Following Shoreham Docks the race turns at Carats Café at 5km returning to the finish at Hove Lawns. Fast times are capable on this course as it is flat, straight and one of the quickest 10km races in the area.
