Back to the seafront – marquees for Brighton Half Marathon

Events, News Mar 07, 2016 By David Coleman

Seaholme’s marquees took another trip to the seaside last weekend for the Brighton Half Marathon 2016, now in it’s 26th year.

Run by The Sussex Beacon, Vitality Brighton Half Marathon starts and finishes at Madeira Drive with a buzzing crowd and a myriad of marquees!

This is the second year Seaholme have been involved in the event, which – in terms of marquee hire – rivals the London to Brighton Cycle Ride. The finishing line is surrounded by marquees of all sizes including tents for massage and first aid, a large marquee to shelter VIPs and celebrities plus long lines of side-by-side charity stalls, stretching an impressive 39 metres and 90 metres along the promenade.

As several of the tents were set up on Brighton’s pebble beach, wooden flooring was provided along with ¾ ton weights to hold the structure steady should adverse weather come in from the coast.

The VIP tent, at 3 metres x 30 metres, proved to be the most elaborate marquee for the event, including ivory roof and wall linings with royal blue swags plus wooden floor and carpet, and – in true VIP style – pretty uplighters and the best of marquee furnishings including gold bistro chairs and lime wash chairs with gold seat pads.

Well done to everyone who helped organise and who took part in the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon this year, and especially to the winners of the race, Leigh Lattimore and Paul Martelletti, who achieved new records for the course.
