The Sussex Beacon Relay returns for a fourth year – with a difference!
We didn’t think it was fair to restrict the fun to businesses only, so we are shaking things up for 2019. This year, anyone can enter a team (over the age of 17), whether that’s friends, family, colleagues or businesses big or small.
The Sussex Beacon Relay takes place at The Grand Brighton Half Marathon on Sunday 24 February 2019 on Madeira Drive, Brighton. Teams of 4 runners will complete the 13.1 mile course in a relay, each completing approximately 5k each by passing a baton between their teammates. Teams will battle it out to complete the course in the quickest time, with the top 3 teams winning an award and prize.
This event is first and foremost a fundraising event to raise vital funds for our services which help people living with HIV. Each team is asked to fundraise a minimum of £200 – but the sky is the limit! The team to fundraise the most for The Sussex Beacon will be crowned the winner of our Top Fundraiser prize and award.
