Being a mini mile megastar just by taking part!

Chestnut Tree House are proud to be official partner of the Brighton Mini Mile 2021, which will see over 2,000 young runners take on a one mile course in Preston Park on Saturday 11 September 2021.

Just by taking part, the young runners will be helping other children, who are unlikely to reach adulthood, live life to the full with their families for the time they have left together – which is truly amazing.

Register now

The Brighton Mini Mile is open to 7-17 year olds, is completely free to enter, and every runner gets an official race t-shirt, medal, goody bag and reusable water bottle.

There is something for the whole family to enjoy, including race village complete with entertainment, stage, screen and food & drink. Plus, we’ll be there with Sidney the Squirrel to cheer you across the line.
