More than 270 runners took to the streets of Brighton on Sunday, 17th April 2016 to raise funds for Chestnut Tree House, the children’s hospice for Sussex. Beginners and experienced runners from all over Sussex and further afield put their best foot forward and took up the challenge to run the BM10k and the full 26.2-mile Brighton Marathon. The sun came out on Brighton seafront and shone on what is now the second biggest marathon in the UK, and they raised thousands of pounds. Congratulations to all the runners who took part.
The first runner back for Chestnut Tree House in the BM10K was Joe Skeaping from Brighton, who runs regularly for Chestnut Tree House, because as a parent he feels passionately that the care and support the hospice provides to sick children and their families is so important.
