Team Beacon 2018 runners at The Grand Brighton Half Marathon

The Brighton Marathon is an iconic race in this popular seaside city, with a beautiful course along the seafront and past many historic and modern sights!

Each year we invite runners with a place in the Brighton Marathon to join Team Beacon, and use their place in the race to support The Sussex Beacon and raise vital funds towards our services for people living with HIV.

We provide support along the way from our dedicated Challenge Events Fundraiser, as well as a technical Team Beacon running vest, and access to our Facebook Team Beacon Runners Support Group for all supporters bravely participating in running events for The Sussex Beacon.

If you are lucky enough to gain a place in the Brighton Marathon and would like to run for The Sussex Beacon we would love to hear from you. Please contact our Challenge Events Fundraiser at for fundraising support and a Team Beacon technical running vest.

You are welcome to visit The Sussex Beacon, to learn about the vital work our nurses, doctors and staff carry out every day to help people living with HIV, and find out exactly how your fundraising can impact our services.
