What is the challenge?

The Italian phenomenon Run 5.30 brings its tour to Brighton this summer for a fantastic 5.3km run through the city streets at 5:30am!

Discover the city of Brighton in a new light at this fantastic event which has a limited number of places available. The race starts and finishes along New Road with the exciting addition of being the first event introducing a route that will take you through the beautiful Royal Pavilion Gardens.

Rockinghorse is extremely pleased to be the official charity partner for the event and Run 5.30 will donate £1 from every sign-up to our cause. You can also make a further donation to Rockinghorse during your online registration or on the day. 

How does the money you raise support us?

In our Golden Jubilee year, we aim to raise £500,000 to support 10 children’s centres and paediatric services in Sussex. Each will benefit from a £50,000 donation to help them improve, refurbish, and develop their environment for the young people benefiting who rely on their services. 

By taking part in Run 5.30 and supporting Rockinghorse, we can continue to collectively ensure children’s services across Sussex are the best they possibly can be for our children now and in the future.
