Super Sunday fun run

Reveal your inner super hero and take part in Hove’s Super Sunday fun run on Sunday 21 May in aid of Rockinghorse.

Choose between 5km or 10km distances for the heroic fancy dress challenge, plus a one-mile fun run for juniors aged 4-8 years old. Races start at Hove Lawns and head along the seafront promenade west, towards Hove Lagoon and back again.

As the events official charity partner, participants are being encouraged to take part to raise vital funds for our 50th year appeal. We aim to raise £500,000 this year to help 10 children’s centres and paediatric services in Sussex.

Through our Sussex Giving for Sussex Children appeal, we will donate £50,000 to each of the chosen projects enabling them to improve, refurbish and develop their environment for the young people benefiting from their work.

David Chapman, Super Sunday event organiser, said: “Rockinghorse was an easy choice for our charity partner, I can remember them from my childhood and we couldn’t wait to help them celebrate their 50th year. Dress up, have fun and help sick children – at Super Sunday you can be a super hero in more way than one.”

Hannah Seltzer, Events Fundraising Co-ordinator at Rockinghorse, added: “By taking part in Super Sunday, you can help us ensure children’s services in Sussex are the best they possibly can be for our children now and in the future. It’s also a great excuse to become your favourite super hero for a morning!”

The Rockinghorse 50th anniversary double-decker bus will be there on the day, giving spectators the opportunity to view the race from a prime position. Races begin at 10am and all runners will receive a bespoke Super Sunday medal. Registration starts from £8 for the one-mile fun run and a donation from every entry will be made to Rockinghorse.
