Charities

Entries for charity places in the 2019 Brighton Marathon are now available.

Running for a charity gives you additional motivation. It increases your focus on those long winter nights and when the training gets tough it makes completing your Marathon even more rewarding. Every charity will offer you incentives to help you reach your fundraising goals, as well as invaluable support and advice in the lead up to, and on your big day.
