There are so many ways you can get involved and support Chestnut Tree House


Brighton Half Marathon

Brighton Half Marathon is one of the major running events on the half marathon calendar. A beautiful seafront course, amazing atmosphere, and crowds of Team Chestnut support.


Well done and thank you to our Chestnut Tree House Half Marathon heroes!

Starting and finishing on Madeira Drive, the Brighton Half Marathon takes in the best sights the city has to offer such as the stunning Brighton Pavilion and famous Brighton Pier, as well as fabulous stretches of coastal road from Ovingdean Cliffs to Hove Lagoon.

You’re guaranteed a picturesque view and roaring crowds all the way round…check out the Brighton Half Marathon Race Course.

Get in touch if you need a fundraising pack and running vest.

If you missed your place in this year’s Brighton Half Marathon, we have a few places left in the Brighton Marathon and BM10K. Or fill out an enquiry form where to apply for our other running events.

Not a runner but would still like to get involved, become a volunteer!

Whilst we couldn’t do what we do without fundraisers, we couldn’t run our events without the tremendous support of our team of volunteers.

They are there to help marshall courses, register participants, direct car parking, organise bag drops, keep participants hydrated, and hand out medals.
