The Worthing 10k has been postponed until Sunday 10 October! Perfect for runners of all abilities, you can still join Team Chestnut in one of the largest, friendliest, and most seafront scenic running events in the south east.
Attracting 2,500 elite runners, club runners, first time runners and fun runners, the Worthing 10k is perfect – whatever your running ability.
Starting and finishing along Worthing’s picturesque promenade, the Worthing 10k is a fast, flat, road run taking you through a scenic coastal route all the way to the gorgeous Goring Gap and back.
Chestnut Tree House is delighted to be an official charity partner again for the Worthing 10k in 2021…meaning we can offer you free entry with a charity place, with only a minimum sponsorship of £100!
All your have to do is enter the code teamchestnut2021 when asked, and you’re entry fee will be reduced to zero.
If you have your own place, you can still join Team Chestnut and use your Worthing 10k place to make a real difference to the lives of children with life limiting conditions across Sussex. Just get in touch.
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.
At Chestnut Tree House, kids can be astronauts for the day in the multi-sensory room, discover creepy crawlies on a woodland walk, or form their very own pop group in the music room.
It is a place where parents can just be parents, and not carers, and where siblings have people to talk to who understand.
There may be a 10k task ahead, but we’re here with you every step of the way!
We’re here to help every step of the way, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Yours and your supporters donations means parents and carers can take a well earned break knowing their child is having fun whilst all of their medical needs are taken care of.
Donations up to £100: would enable a nurse to make a home visit to a child in their own home – providing some respite and support for the family.
Donations up to £250: could provide an hour of fun, laughter, care and support at home for children with life shortening conditions and their families across Sussex and South East Hampshire
Donations up to £500: are enough to give a child a few hours exploring their local community or chilling at home whilst families and carers take a well-earned break
Donations up to £1000: can mean a child can spend time at Chestnut Tree House at the end of their life, ensuring they are comfortable and cared for by a specialist team and their family has the chance to say goodbye.
Volunteers are the key to making our challenge events such a success! Without the support of volunteers, we simply couldn’t put on our events.
