Everyone in life is looking for a certain rush. Running is where I get mine!

From those start line butterflies and finish line highs in Princes Park, the Eastbourne Half 2022 will take you all along the stunning seafront out to Holywell, past the iconic pier, and through the wonderful Sovereign Harbour.

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.

Use your Eastbourne Half 2022 place and 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.
