Last chance for a charity place in Brighton Half!

Thursday 18th January 2018
Charity places in The Grand Brighton Half Marathon close on Sunday 28th January and runners are being urged to sign up to avoid missing out.
The 28th Brighton Half Marathon takes place on Sunday 25th February. General entries to the race sold out in October and charity places are now the only way to enter the race.
Runners can choose to run for over 30 partner charities, including local charities RISE, Chestnut Tree House and The Sussex Beacon, plus national charities including Alzheimer’s Society and WaterAid.
This year the race has a brand-new headline sponsor in The Grand, the city’s iconic seafront hotel, which is also on the course route.
The race is organised by Brighton-based charity The Sussex Beacon, which provides specialist support and care for people living with HIV through both inpatient and outpatient services. The charity helps hundreds of people living with HIV in Sussex and the race is the charity’s largest annual event. 
The Grand Brighton Half Marathon has become one of the most popular races in the UK since its first event in the 1990s. The 13.1-mile half marathon route takes runners from Brighton’s famous pier through the centre of the city, before heading along the seafront past The Grand hotel. 
The Grand Brighton Half Marathon’s Race Director, Martin Harrigan, comments:
 "At this time of year we are often asked by runners whether there are spaces left in the race and the answer is yes – via a charity place. Each and every one of our partner charities do incredible work and last year the event raised over £1 million for charitable causes, which is a breathtaking figure. We also encourage those who signed up for a general entry place to fundraise for a cause close to their heart – whether it’s £5 or £500, every little helps!”
