Walkers, joggers and runners can choose from one, three or six mile courses. The event starts at 9.30am with the different distances starting at staggered times throughout the morning.
The Mayor of Eastbourne, Councillor Mike Thompson, who is starting the race, said, “Come on Eastbourne, what are you waiting for? Last year the Eastbourne Mile had more than 200 participants, and this year we want even more of you to get involved.”
