Brighton Marathon 2020

Due to the escalation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Brighton Marathon has been postponed from 19 April until 20 September 2020.  We’d like to thank our Team St Barnabas runners for their support, especially at this difficult time, and for making every step count for families across Worthing and the local community.

Brighton Marathon 2020

Update 13 March 2020

We completely understand why the decision was taken to postpone the Brighton Marathon Weekend. The preparation needed for running events like this by the participants who signed up to take part for St Barnabas House should not be underestimated. We would like to thank all our Team St Barnabas runners for their support and hope to see them on the rescheduled date in September.

All runners due to take part in the Brighton Marathon Weekend should have received official communications from the event organisers. But, if you were due to run for us and have any queries, please get in touch with our events team.

Thank you for your support. We will keep you informed with updates from the organisers, as well as more dates for summer training runs.

Team St Barnabas runners taking part in the Brighton Marathon 2020 help raise vital funds to provide end of life care services and support for even more families across Worthing and the local community.
