Will you go the extra mile for Raystede by running the 2022 Brighton Marathon for us?

It's been a tough couple of years and by running for Raystede you will be helping us care for the rescue animals that desperately need us like 6 month old Bella below. For every £375 you raise it could buy two month's worth of food, toys and medication for one of our kennel dogs.


Did you know that the Brighton Marathon is the second largest marathon in the UK? The route will take you past some of Brighton's most famous landmarks, including the Brighton Pavilion. As you run along you can take in the sea air and coastal views. We will be there to cheer you on and as you make your way around the route you will encounter lots of support from a lively and energetic crowd!

So join the team and take on this challenge for the Raystede rescue animals. We have a limited number of spaces. It's £30 to register and we're asking that you raise £375.

After signing up, you will also be offered a unique tour of Raystede so that you can see the animals you're helping by running for us.

Check Out Our Covid Promise

If you have already secured a spot in the Brighton Marathon and have your OWN PLACE we would love for you to run for the animals at our centre.

As you have your own space there is no fundraising target and we just appreciate any money you manage to raise for us.

Run For Raystede Using My Own Space

If 26 miles is too far for you, what about the BM 10k run instead? Or, if you don't fancy pounding the pavements, why not harness your pedal power and take part in the BM 50k bike ride for the animals?
