We are excited to announce that we have a limited number of spaces in the Brighton Trail Marathon! This stunning coast-to-country marathon takes place on Sunday 11th June 2023. You will start at East Brighton Park and finish at the beautiful Stanmer Park. You will encounter 6 different climbs on the route; each offering breath-taking views and making this an unforgettable challenge.

There will be aid stations to keep you hydrated and cheer points to offer you encouragement as you take on this marathon for the animals.

To sign up for this exciting challenge, the registration fee is £30 and the fundraising target is £350.

By taking part in the Brighton Trail Marathon you will be helping rescue animals like Purdi above. Every step you take will help us to give animals like Purdi the love and care they deserve.

While they are patiently waiting for their forever home they will be walked 3 times a day, have access to any necessary veterinary treatment, have toys to play with, as well as food and treats to eat. They can even play in our sand pit, let off some steam by running around in a field and using agility equipment or enjoy a splash in a paddling pool if it's a hot day.

Raystede never gives up on any animal and will provide the best care to animals like Purdi- but none of this would be possible without supporters like you raising vital sponsorship for us.

Why take part?

  • Take part in a trail marathon with stunning views of the south coast
  • Fundraising tips and tricks to smash your targets
  • A Raystede running top - you can proudly show off you're #TeamRaystede
  • Lots of support and whoops from our cheer squad en-route
  • You'll be doing something amazing for the animals!

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.
