  • You'll be doing something amazing for the animals!

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.

Supporting your fundraising:

  • We are with you every step of the way to help support you in your fundraising
  • Fundraising Pack: full of ideas to give your fundraising a kick start. It will also include a Raystede sporty t-shirt or running vest.
  • JustGiving is the simplest way for your family, friends, and colleagues to sponsor you.

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 you're not a runner but would like to support Team Raystede, then you could join our cheer squad. Perhaps you have friends or family running in the race or would like to help motivate our runners. Whatever your reason, let us know that you're up for joining the cheer squad by emailing fundraising@raystede.org or by phoning us on 01825 840747.

Many of the animals that come to Raystede are going through challenges in their lives, so by taking on this epic challenge you really are helping us to give animals a better life!
