Be a 2020 Marathon Fundraiser for #TeamMartlets

Make life miles better for local people with a New Year goal to help change lives

We have London and Brighton Marathons and Brighton Half Marathon places available for runners keen to set a New Year goal for themselves and help raise funds to change lives for local people living with terminal illness and their families.

If you’re looking for something active to start the new year off, we’d love you to take on this challenge. Now is the time to step up training and join #TeamMartlets by running one of three spring marathons.

Running a marathon is a huge accomplishment. By signing up to fundraise for a charity you can stay motivated.  Martlets will be there to support its runners every step of the way. Our support includes providing fundraising help and a branded sports vest to wear.

Martlets’ places are available for the Brighton Half Marathon on Sunday 23rd February and the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 19th April.  Limited places for the London Marathon on 26th April are also available. Runners will need to apply to enter the Martlets ballot and will be notified if a place comes available.

Clem Hunnisett from the Martlets Fundraising Team said,

“We are always so amazed and humbled by the incredible lengths our fundraisers go to for us and running a Marathon or a Half Marathon is one of the ultimate running achievements.  Running for a charity like Martlets that is close to you or your community can really help you stay on track.  We are only able to provide free life-changing hospice care thanks to the generosity and hard work of our supporters.

Now is the time to make that New Year fitness resolution and get outside and start training. Becoming part of #TeamMartlets means we will support you from helping to raise your sponsorship target to cheering you to the finish line on the day, our community spirit is in the heart of everything we do!”

If you’ve already got your place and would like to be a part of #TeamMartlets, then please get in touch by emailing

We’re so humbled by the kind support of so many from throughout Brighton, Hove and beyond who fundraise for us. Whether it’s your first marathon, or your tenth like Nigel , your support is crucial.

With the Brighton Half Marathon just 3 months away, there’s no better time to set yourself a goal that is truly life-changing.
