Distance: 26.2 Miles | Registration Fee: £50 | Fundraising Target: £500

Brighton dedicates one weekend a year to hold several running events for those at all abilities. With Brighton being the second largest marathon within the UK with 12,000 participants taken part & well over 150,000 supporters cheering people on, it’s a great event to get involved with!

The course starts in Preston Park, snakes its way through the city centre, along the glorious seafront and finishes at the iconic Madeira Drive in front of thousands of cheering spectators.

Every mile you run and every penny you raise will help in rebuilding lives.

Running the Brighton Marathon was by far my personal highlight of 2018. I was contacted by Child Bereavement (Becky) when she had seen I had signed up for the event and I decided that I wanted to get as much sponsorship as I could from my friends, family and colleagues (who I am sure all felt badgered by me). In terms of the marathon itself - running through Brighton, past its landmarks but mostly the sea views made it a special day. However, the most rewarding aspect of running was knowing that I had fund raised for Child Bereavement UK. A charity that has been in my life for as long as I can remember due to my mum's association with the charity (she was a trustee I believe). Child Bereavement helps and supports families in a time of unimaginable suffering and pain. Child Bereavement help pick up the pieces and construct future positive opportunities for the bereft and that is definitely worth fund raising and running for.
