 Brighton Marathon 2018 here we come!

Woodcraft folk have secured 5 places in the Brighton Marathon 2018.  Taking place on Sunday 15th April, the Brighton Marathon is a popular event on the Marathon circuit taking in the iconic sites of the city ending at the seafront in the events village where you can celebrate with family and friends, lay on the beach or dip your tired feet in the cool sea. There is a great atmosphere with plenty of crowds cheering you on, it’s a great day out for all the family.

As a runner you will be raising much needed funds to help to empower children & young people and support our volunteer leaders from across the UK to continue our work & reach out to new communities.

If you feel up the to challenge or know of a family member or friend who would like a place in the marathon please contact me at sarah.mcdonell@woodcraft.org.uk

For those of you who prefer spectator sports put the date in your diary as we want to see as many people there throughout the day to cheer, sing & generally support our runners and enjoy a fun day out.

Runners will receive;

  • A goody bag at the end of the race from the race organisers    
  • A winners medal from the race organisers
  • Personalised running vest
  • Training advice
  • Fundraising support through just giving, our website and newsletters
  • A team of cheerers on the day
  • A huge sense of achievement
  • Possibly a blister or two!

What we ask

  • Registration is £30 payable on confirmation of place (half the current price!)
  • We ask you aim to raise £400 in sponsorship for Woodcraft Folk. Any money you raise over £400 (not including any gift aid on that amount) you can donate a percentage to your own local group or district of your choosing

So don’t delay, if it’s something you have always wanted to do or are an avid marathon runner wanting to improve your PB, dust off your running shoes and get in touch.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

In friendship
