When you join Team St Barnabas we’ll be with you every step of the way, and will offer you all the support you need.

Before your half marathon:

  • Facebook Group: Sharing is caring. Join our St Barnabas House Run Group to chat and share stories, tips, and ideas.
  • Strava Club: A Team St Barnabas Running Club, where you can join events and training runs. Maybe find a running buddy too!
  • There may be a (half) marathon task ahead, but we’re here with you every step of the way! If you have a question about running and fundraising for Team St Barnabas, get in touch today.

On race day:

  • You’ll be encouraged on around the route! Watch out for our smiling volunteer team who’ll be cheering you on!
  • At the finish line we’ll be there to see you over the line – with high fives and cheers all round! <a name=”team”></a>

We’ve put together lots of helpful hints and tips about how to train for a half marathon on our Running Hub, including how to stay motivated! We update our information regularly, and cover everything from running kit tips to nutritional advice.

We’ll also be in touch with you regularly in the run up for your challenge – and you’ll be able to ask us any questions!

JustGiving pages are the easiest way to start fundraising, as you can set them up quickly, share them across social media immediately (even connect it to Strava), and all money come directly to us. JustGiving also takes care of all Gift Aid!

Or, if you prefer things old school – then we have a handy sponsorship form you can download to collect your fundraising.

Once you’re signed up we’ll send you out a fundraising pack with hints and tips to help you get going!

When you fundraise £200 for Team St B’s you could be paying for:

  • An afternoon with the hospice’s artist-in-residence for 4 patients, using creativity to explore complex feelings as they near the end of their life.
  • A night of care for a patient on the hospice ward, so they can get help managing their symptoms and return home more comfortable and relaxed after a short stay.
  • A whole day of hospice care at home, surrounded by home comforts and the people they love.

Running the half marathon in memory

Many participants in past years choose to run the Brighton Half Marathon in memory of a loved one they’ve lost. Dedicating your time and energy into a personal challenge is an amazing way to honour someone who you’ve lost. By fundraising for us you’re also saying the best ‘thank you’ to the nurses and care professionals who helped care for your loved one.

Paul and dad

The care my dad received at St Barnabas House was incredible, it was first class. He was a keen runner, so he’d be proud that I’ve been able to take my running to the next level.
