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 2022 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.

Already have your Brighton Half 2022 place? You can still join Team Chestnut to help make local children’s hospice care possible – now and in the future! Get in touch and speak to us today.
