“Making the dream become reality.
Jo has worked in the events industry since 2001, setting up Jo Event Solutions in 2016.”
Born in 2009 in Italy, developed by an artist named Sergio and a nutritionist named Sabrina, the Run 5.30 concept arrived! Ten years later, over 165,000 people have taken part in a 5.30 event across Italy, the UK and USA.
Jo Event Solutions was approached in 2017 to assist in bringing the event idea to a new city in the UK, with Jo Osborne suggesting her home town of Brighton. Two years later, the event is a huge success with it appealing to both runners and walkers with its unique concept; a 5km distance completed at 5:30am on a Friday morning, with a medal and breakfast at the end. The event takes place in the stunning streets of Brighton, before the city wakes up. Jo Osborne works as Events Manager, contracted to work on Sponsorship, Route Planning, Council Liaison, Logistics, Marketing and Event Management/Delivery on the day.
