Join Team Rockinghorse in the 2021 Brighton Half Marathon! We have a limited number of places for runners who would like to take on the iconic Brighton Half Marathon, now in it’s 31st year!

The event takes in Brighton in all its beauty: you’ll run past Brighton Pavilion Pier, the Royal Pavilion, Hove’s colourful beach huts and the British Airways i360. You’re also promised stunning sea views in 95% of the course! Runners will receive a race pack and fundraising support from our Challenge Event Fundraising Manager. Help us to continue providing equipment and services for sick children in Sussex.

Following many of the cancellations and postponements of marathon events during 2020, this will be a great chance to get running again and  join the Rockinghorse running team to be part of this memorable occasion.

How will we support you?

We will provide you with Rockinghorse fundraising materials including a running vest or t-shirt to help you with your fundraising. On the day there will be a Rockinghorse cheering team along the race route, where our runners can top up on snacks and drinks.

You’ll also receive support from our dedicated Challenge Events Fundraising Manager, who will be able to advise you how to maximise your sponsorship.

How does the money you raise support us?

Our Brighton Half Marathon runners raised almost £14,000 in 2020. Their fundraising has directly contributed to the oncology psychology service at the Alex, where the charity has funded a dedicated Clinical Psychologist. Dr Alice Emond specialises in psychological support for children and young people during, and after their treatment for cancer.  To find out more about this service, please click here.

Here at Rockinghorse, we raise money to support sick and disadvantaged children in Sussex. We are best known for our work with the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, and the neighbouring Trevor Mann Baby Unit.

Our charity also provides support to many other hospitals, children’s centres and paediatric services across Sussex. To find out more about the projects we’re currently fundraising for, please click here.

Volunteer!

You can be part of our cheering squad and help give a real boost to our Rockinghorse runners… Are you a friend or family member of someone running in the race, or perhaps you’d planned to take part but are currently injured? We need you!

Your support will help give our runners a real lift as they make their way around the Brighton Half Marathon route.
