RUN THE WORLD

Run The World was an initiative set up by Grounded Events. Its aim was to encourage children to be active in sport. The children aged 7 to 11 had the fantastic opportunity to run 1km and contribute towards a big overall total of kilometres. 
 
2014 was the last staging of the event, which saw thousands of children take part from across Brighton & Hove at three locations over three days including Preston Park, Hove Park and Homefield Park.
