Established in June 2007 by Tim Hutchings (CEO) and Tom Naylor (Managing Director), The Grounded Events Company Ltd. is responsible for producing a number of successful, mass participation sporting events and other community initiatives. Most notably, the Brighton Marathon Weekend, which over the last 6 years has established itself as a premier fixture on the UK’s sporting event calendar.
Each year over 16,000 participants take part in the Brighton Marathon Weekend across three events; Brighton Marathon, BM10k and the Mini-Mile Races. The city welcomes over 150,000 supporters who line the city streets and visit the bespoke beach-based Event Village next to Madeira Drive.
Such success demonstrates why the Brighton Marathon has quickly become the 2nd largest UK marathon and proof that a strong collaboration between an event organiser, a city council, and all crucial third parties – the emergency services, suppliers, volunteers and the runners themselves – can achieve great things in a short space of time.
We have also collaborated on large-scale international events, working to launch the first UK Electric Run and first UK Reebok Ragnar Relay.
