The Grand Brighton prepares to put on a show at the Brighton Half Marathon

The Grand Brighton is gearing up for The Grand Brighton Half Marathon 2019, in what will be the hotel’s second year as the headline sponsor. Offering front-row seats to the action and a line-up of unmissable entertainment on the day, The Grand Brighton is the place to be on Sunday 24th February.

The Empress Suite will play host to an invite-only breakfast for special guests from the local community, before the race begins at 9.30am. Guests will then enjoy refreshments and entertainment in two of the hotel’s sea-facing hospitality rooms, guaranteeing the best seats in the house for the iconic race.

From 10.45am - 12.45pm, race spectators gathered outside the hotel will enjoy performances from The Grand Brighton’s balconies. BBC stars and Brighton pop-trio The Sundaes will take to the ‘stage’, alongside i Star Academy dancers - including British Rhythmic Gymnastics Champions.

Half marathon runners can relax post-run in Grand style, with 2-for-1 offers on spa treatments as well as a free dessert or cocktail when eating in GB1*.

Andrew Mosley, General Manager of The Grand Brighton, said: “We are so excited for what promises to be a brilliant day of entertainment, celebrating what is always a highlight of the city’s annual calendar. As we head into the second Brighton half marathon as the headline sponsor, it’s fantastic to be a part of an event that makes a real difference by fundraising for such a variety of vital causes – we’ll be cheering on our own team of five runners too.

“Runners and spectators this year can also enjoy an improved view as they pass through the course, with our fresh new façade standing proudly en route!”

The race is organised by The Sussex Beacon charity who provide specialist support and care for people living with HIV through both inpatient and outpatient services. It helps hundreds of people living with HIV in Sussex. The Grand Brighton Half Marathon is the charity’s biggest annual event, as well as being a significant fundraising event for a variety of other worthy charities and causes.
