Brighton Marathon 2021

Show the world that humanity can win in the Brighton Marathon

Join our team of human rights heroes in the Brighton Marathon. Join the 12,000 runners in the UK’s second largest marathon. Follow the course through the city and along the glorious seafront to the finish line on Madeira Drive. With an amazing atmosphere and beautiful sea views, the Brighton Marathon is the perfect event for runners of all levels and experience.

As part of #TeamHumanity, you will receive the very best support, including:

  • A branded Refugee Action running vest
  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting, stickers and collection tins,
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team

Runners are asked to raise a minimum £400 sponsorship, and there is a £20 fee to register.

With every mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. At Refugee Action, we’re determined to ensure that Britain is a country that truly welcomes refugees. By taking on this challenge, you will be getting us one step closer to that reality.
