The half marathon course is broken down into 5 fun-size legs with the first team member setting off from the start line to complete 3.1 miles (5k), and the following 4 team members completing a leg of 2.5 miles (4k) each. The relay begins with the main race, so the atmosphere is incredible. To top it off, your first team member with be starting their leg upfront behind the elites – a real experience which draws so many people to this event.

Registering a team includes many desirable extras on top of entry for your 5 runners, such as:

  • Race day access to our fabulous VIP Corporate Relay marquee situated right by the start/finish line offering the perfect view and electric atmosphere for team mates, friends and family members, hot/cold food and beverages throughout the day, comfy seating to relax, special baggage area and separate toilets (no long queues for you!).
  • An invitation to an exclusive pre-race evening in Brighton to inform your runners of everything they need to know leading up to the event.
  • Sussex Beacon corporate relay technical running T-shirts for your team.
  • Fundraising packs full of useful information and resources.
  • A superb finisher’s medal for each runner.
  • Your company logo will feature here on the Brighton Half Marathon website.
  • All for the price of £500 per team.

The three teams to complete the relay in the fastest time win an award and prize. Of course, it is called The Sussex Beacon Corporate Relay for a reason, so all teams must fundraise for The Sussex Beacon, who provide specialist care and support for people living with HIV. This aspect of the event has drummed up the most competition between our businesses which have returned for every year of the event, as the best fundraising team also wins an award and prize!

The event is a brilliant opportunity for company social media, team building and to support the community through a local charity – and most importantly to have a fun-packed day.
