The Sussex Beacon Relay wants YOU!

The Sussex Beacon Relay Half Marathon

Register your team now and become part of one of Brighton’s most iconic races.

The Grand Brighton Half Marathon is among the biggest annual running events on the South Coast, which is organized by The Sussex Beacon charity and will take place again on Sunday 24th February 2019. The Sussex Beacon is the city’s biggest HIV charity, and supports people living with HIV in Sussex and beyond. In addition to offering individual running places, next year will also see the fourth return of the relay race as part of the half marathon. Entries for this event used to be restricted to businesses and corporate organisations. For the first time in 2019, anyone can enter the race as a team of four, which can include friends, family members, running mates, work colleagues, or businesses of any size. Each team will complete the 13.1 mile race in a relay, with every runner completing around 5k each by passing a baton between their team members. A further incentive to finish the relay in the quickest possible time is that the first three teams will win an award and prize!  Each team is asked to fundraise a minimum of £200 for The Sussex Beacon, but there is of course no upper limit on how much fundraising can be achieved by our amazing runners! This new format of The Sussex Beacon Relay offers a fantastic opportunity to support The Sussex Beacon with its biggest yearly fundraising event that is crucial to raise important funds for the charity to provide its services, care and support to people living with HIV.
