They might not have been able to fly faster than a speeding bullet but about 1,500 superheroes were more than capable of handling a 10km run along the seafront. Capes were fluttering, plenty of Lycra was on show and there was face paint aplenty as characters of all shapes and sizes took part in the annual Heroes Run on Hove Lawns. Batman was seen chatting with Catwoman and Superman while Captain America rubbed shoulders with Harry Potter, the Incredible Hulk and the Invisible Man. David Tennant’s incarnation of Dr Who also made several appearances, along with cartoon characters He-Man, Dangermouse and Bananaman. Sam Rushforth, 30, of Brighton Place, Brighton, joined the run as She-Ra, with friend Gemma Hoskins, 26, of Hendon Street, Brighton, who ran as her own creation, Super-Gemma. Debra Roker, 41, of Seafield Crescent, Hove, made up the trio dressed in a Supergirl outfit. She said: “We heard about how good the event was last year so we wanted to get involved this year. “It’s in aid of a fantastic cause and it is a great day. Dressing up as the heroes just adds to the fun.” Brian Fletcher, 33, of Arundel Road, Peacehaven, went along as Batman. He said: “I’ve always loved the programme since I was child. Being able to dress up as Batman is great.” Sam Langdon, 31, of Harbour Way, Shoreham, joined the race as an unseasonal Father Christmas. He said: “I didn’t have time to find a costume so my mother went on eBay and bought this for me. I did the run dressed as a devil last year so you could say I went from Satan to Santa.” The race, now in its sixth year, has raised more than £250,000 for Brighton and Hove charity Passing it On. The charity, which was founded by race organisers Matt Lambert and Jim MacDonald, supports schools and communities in Kenya, Ghana and Gambia. Mr Lambert said: “We have had a great turnout yet again, with so many people getting into the spirit.” Organisers are hoping to break the world record for the most superhero characters in one place.
