Brighton Half - Run for us!

Date: 19 August 2021

In seven weeks’ time, Team SCFT will be taking part in one of the South East’s largest running events, the Brighton Half Marathon, to raise funds that will help our staff and patients.

Now in its 31st year, the Brighton Half is a runner’s panoramic delight, with the course traversing many of Brighton’s famous sites. Starting and finishing on Madeira Drive, our runners will be passing the Brighton Palace Pier, Royal Pavilion, West Pier and British Airways i360 - not forgetting the glorious sea views and breezing past the colourful beach huts of Hove!

Our 15 runners will be raising funds that will help us to continue providing grants to teams across Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust. These grants will be used to improve the physical and mental health of patients, staff and volunteers. This might be through improving equipment and facilities, supporting staff development, creating better care environments and advancing our understanding through medical research. 

Due to a few runners deferring to next year, we now have three charity places up for grabs. If you are interested in joining our team, here are the main bits you need to know:

  • The race will take place on Sunday 10 October 2021.
  • You’ll need to pay a registration fee of £10.
  • The fund-raising target is £200 – but anything is possible!
  • The distance is 13.1 miles – which is known to be a very flat course!
  • We’ll send you a fantastic technical running T-shirt or vest (your choice!).
  • You will receive fund-raising support from our dedicated team.
  • You can join our community of charity runners and share your experience through our Strava and Facebook groups.
  • You will be doing something amazing!
