Message from Peter Simpson – We know that several members are entered for the Brighton Half marathon, scheduled for 19 February, start time 9am from Madeira Drive near The Pier. Best of luck to everyone running, lets hope we have milder weather than we have present. I shall be traveling down from Milton Keynes on the day by public transport so will not be there for the start but I guess other members not entered from the area will be there in support at the start. I may arrive to see the first runners finish and possibly take photos around 12 miles. Alternatively I may bring the small banner normally used at the finish of the London Marathon, “Congratulations Veggie / Vegan Runners”. That may help to attract attention or find our meeting point!
Following your run and for supporters, our meeting point for a drink / refreshment is the Aloka in East Street, off Madeira Drive, a short walk back along the course towards the town. It is an opportunity for the members who need to leave early to meet your colleagues. For members & supporters staying for lunch, we will take the opportunity of visiting Idyea Vegetarian Kitchen at 17 Kensington Gardens, North Laines off Gloucester Road. We will aim to meet in the cafe by noon.
