New Headline sponsor for the Brighton Half Marathon

We are really pleased to announce that Brighton-based business telecoms provider Rubix VT are our new headline sponsor.

With offices at the Sussex Innovation Centre, Rubix VT is well known for supporting community initiatives across East and West Sussex.

As the headline sponsor for the next three years, Rubix VT believes the new partnership provides the perfect opportunity to give back to the local community in supporting runners and their fundraising efforts.

Martin Harrigan, Rubix VT Brighton Half Marathon Race Director, said: “It’s incredibly exciting to announce that Rubix VT will be our new headline sponsor for the next three years. 

“I know Nick and the team at Rubix VT have a real passion for running and have shown their support for a range of community initiatives across Sussex – values which we, as an event owned by a charity, find incredibly important.

Nick Poyner, Managing Director at Rubix VT, commented:

“The Brighton Half Marathon is a fantastic community event with an incredible heritage and with fundraising and Charity very much at its core. An opportunity to support The Sussex Beacon and all the other amazing charities that participate in the event was such an easy decision to make.

Charity and giving back to our local communities is a core value for ourselves as a business.

We have supported a number of initiatives across Sussex, including campaigns by Rocking Horse Children’s Charity, Chestnut Tree House and Brighton based Charity the Starr Trust who we will be supporting through our partnership with the Half.”
