The Brighton Half Marathon and charity partners


The Brighton Half Marathon is well established as one of the largest running events in the South East with 12,000 runner registrations each year.

The 2021 event on Sunday 27th June will be in its 31st year, with new branding to reflect a new decade of the race.

The UK Athletics certified race features a stunning seafront course in one of the country’s most vibrant cities. From Brighton Pier to The Royal Pavilion, the impressive course takes in Brighton’s key landmarks. Thousands of spectators come to cheer on runners, creating an unbeatable atmosphere and attracting high profile media coverage.

It’s the perfect event to showcase your charity. Organised by local HIV charity The Sussex Beacon, charities are at the heart of the race and each year the event raises around £1 million for charitable causes.

Our aim is to help you attract runners and inspire them to fundraise for your charity. We partner with charities big and small – take a look through our charity packages detailed inside our downloadable charity guide for information on how we work.
