Set among the buzzing city streeets and stunning coastal views of Brighton and Hove, it’s easy to see why the Brighton Marathon is one of the country’s most loved marathons. This run gets bigger and better every year and the finish along the spectacular seafront is a real highlight.

Pilgrims Hospices have just 5 charity spaces available in Brighton Marathon. These places are offered on a first come, first served basis with a registration fee of £20 and a pledge to raise at least £500 for local hospice care.

Clare’s dad would have been highly humoured by running 26.2 miles for ‘fun’, and after seeing the care that Pilgrims offered her dad, she knew this was the challenge for her.

They were the most compassionate, professional, friendly people you could hope to meet and we are all immensely grateful for the support they provided.
