Well done to every Brighton Half hero in 2022!

Whilst it was less than ideal running conditions…once again that wind was both a blessing in one direction and a curse in the other, you made it and still with a big smile on your face.

It was great to see you all and our volunteers loved seeing you run by and giving you a shout out from the cheer point on the seafront and the water stop in Hove…we hope your supporters enjoyed spotting you out on route too.

Find your finish times here, and be sure to check out our Team Chestnut pictures from the day…feel free to tag yourselves and share on your social media.

You feel good while you’re running and even better when you’re finished!

From those start line butterflies and finish line highs on the bustling Madeira Drive, the Brighton Half 2023 will take you past the city’s iconic Royal Pavilion, around the beautiful Hove Lawns, and back along the stunning seafront for a run that will stay with you.

Whatever your reason, your support means local children and families who know they don’t have long together have the chance to live life to the full and say goodbye in the way that is right for them.
