Brighton Half Marathon - Sunday 26 February 2023

The Brighton Half Marathon is an annual half marathon road running race.  The race is run primarily along Brighton seafront and passes through famous landmarks such as the Royal Pavilion, Brighton Pier, West Pier and Brighton Marina.

Martlets charity places are £25 (registration fee, non-refundable) and we also ask that you raise £250 minimum sponsorship.

All Martlets runners will receive:

  • A Martlets running vest
  • A fundraising pack full of great ideas to inspire you
  • Brighton Half Marathon Medal

Our Martlets team will be there from the second you sign up to help with key information, advice and support, just contact us at

How does the money you raise make a difference?

We're only able to provide free life-changing hospice care thanks to the generosity and hard work of our supporters.  Here's how your fundraising could help.

  • £34 could help us fund a complementary therapy session
  • £188 could pay for 2 ‘respite home visits, delivered by Martlets Care to give carers and family a break for a few hours
  • £700 could pay for an inpatient unit (IPU) bed for a day
  • £1,250 could fund 13 ‘hospice at home’ visits, so patients can receive expert care in the comfort of their own home

 THANK YOU for all of your support. Together we will keep Martlets caring.
