About Us

Hove Promenade parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Hove Lawns, Kingsway, Brighton & Hove, BN3 2FR. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee at The Lawns Café, Hove Lawns (directly opposite intersection with Kingsway and First Avenue). Please note, this venue has outdoor seating only - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.


  • Alfresco Bar & Restaurant: Our principal supporter is the iconic, award-winning Alfresco restaurant located directly on the seafront opposite the enchanting skeleton of the West Pier near the most easterly point of our parkrun. A family business since 1996, this stunning venue is the perfect location for a classic Italian coffee, a glass of wine on the terrace or a relaxed lunch. They also accommodate weddings and other private events designing something to suit all requirements. Their upstairs restaurant is a superb modern Italian menu inspired by seasonal, ethically and locally-sourced ingredients, combined with exceptional service.

  • Dental Health Spa: The fabulous team at Dental Health Spa on Queens Road (next door to Sweatshop just down from Brighton station) can look after all your dental needs to make sure you are 100% kissable. On site, you can also find a range of alternative and complementary treatments such as hairdressing, facials, laser hair & tattoo removal, nail art plus keep yourself in shape with vibration training, all at affordable prices in one convenient location

  • David PM Lewis Wealth Management: David Lewis offers a holistic and honest financial planning service for families, professionals, sports people and businesses. With a strong emphasis on building personal client relationships, David is able to offer specialist advice on insurance, investments and pensions.

  • Brighton Triathlon Race Series (BTRS): Regular weekly training sessions, events and socials throughout the year for those interested in swimming, cycling and/or running (suitable for all abilities) with an exceptionally friendly group.
