Drawing runners from across the UK, the flat course makes it perfect for novice runners and seasoned pros alike, taking in the beautiful coastal views and enjoying a fantastic atmosphere!

On Sunday 26th February we had an amazing team of 120 runners take part in the Brighton Half Marathon for WaterAid.

It was a rather wet, chilly day but everyone did an incredible job and the support around the course was great as our teams of staff and volunteers cheered the runners on to reach the finish line!

Thank you to all of our fabulous runners and volunteers for their incredible support.

Check out some of our photos from the day - visit our Facebook page.

How to send sponsorship in 

If you've set up a fundraising webpage, the monies donated on-line should be transferred to WaterAid automatically. However, if you've raised money off-line, here is how to get it sent to us: 

It is more efficient and cost effective for us to process sponsorship in batches, which saves funds that can instead be used to help some of the world's poorest people gain access to safe water and sanitation. We therefore ask that you collect as much sponsorship as possible before sending it to:

The Events team
WaterAid
47- 49 Durham Street
London SE11 5JD

Please remember to include the following information when sending in your sponsorship:
  • Your name 
  • What the sponsorship is for  
  • Sponsor form with names/addresses of the sponsors and whether they would like to apply Gift Aid 
We strongly recommend that you send your sponsorship via recorded delivery so that you can track and hopefully retrieve your envelope if it goes missing. Sponsorship does go missing in the post from time to time, and it's hugely disappointing for both runners and the charity, so recorded delivery is always worth the extra effort.
