Symphotech event safety management firm has been appointed by Goldline Events to oversee the inaugural goGIRL Brighton & Hove.

The event, which consisted of a 5km race for female athletes at Hove seafront, took place on 24 June.

The Symphotech team oversaw heath and safety, and provided advice, contingency plans and project management before and after the race.

Symphotech director Will Hodgson commented: “We were delighted to be tasked with overseeing health and safety at the inaugural goGIRL Brighton & Hove; a fantastic new event that hopes to inspire women and girls into running.”

Judith Manson, Goldline Events managing director, added: “We were really excited to launch this event within my home town of Brighton & Hove. It was fantastic to see so many women take part in, and enjoy the event. We’ve worked with Symphotech on many previous events and having recently appointed them as our safety consultants, they were the obvious choice to help us launch this event into the sporting calendar.”

Next year’s goGirl Brighton & Hove event will take place on 16 June 2017.
