Distance: 26.2 Miles

Fundraising Pledge: £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.
