It's the first event of its kind as Andy Dickenson explains. He speaks to the Mayor, Cllr Pete West, as well as organiser Brenda Pollack.

Brighton Marathon runners have been warned that Sunday's race will be a scorcher. Organisers have messaged all participants - as temperatures look set to hit highs of at least 21 degrees. Spectators along the 26-mile course are also being advised to pack the sunscreen.
Organisers of the Brighton Half Marathon have apologised after it emerged the course has been 146 metres or 479 feet short for the past three years.
An inquiry was launched after runners reported that data recorded on their tracking devices failed to measure up to the 13.1-mile distance.
UK Athletics contacted Brighton Half Marathon organisers following concerns about last month's race, and it has emerged the course had fallen short by 146m or 0.09 miles since 2015.
The area of concern centred on a turning point just after mile four where the course passes the independent Roedean School before turning and heading back towards Brighton.
We have concluded that the eastern turning point has been positioned incorrectly over the last three half marathons, resulting in a shortfall in the overall half marathon distance. We are devastated that this mistake has happened and apologise unreservedly to all runners who took part in the affected race years.
The news means that runners face having their personal bests, records and race times affected. And officials admitted the error was likely to have overshadowed the event for many.
DJ Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, launched this year's marathon, marking the 27th year of the race, which raises funds for the Sussex Beacon, supporting an HIV care centre in Brighton.
