The Course
An accurately measured, point-to-point race along the Eastbourne seafront. No turnaround to content with on the 1 mile, plus a pancake flat course, should make for fast times. Those running the 5k will complete an out and back course along the seafront starting and finishing close to Eastbourne Band Stand.

First Aid
Private medical services will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Prize giving and presentations will take place approximately 45 minutes after the first runner home.

Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.
Race Start: Adjacent to Bandstand, Opposite Cavendish Hotel, Grand Parade, Eastbourne, BN21 4DH.
The race headquarters will be at Eastbourne Bandstand. Parking is available along the seafront and in designated car parks within the town centre, but please take note of any parking restrictions or charges that may be in force.

For those wishing to arrive by train, the bandstand is approximately a 15 minute walk from Eastbourne railway station.
