The 2020 Brighton Marathon has been postponed until Sunday the 20th September. We are looking forward to cheering all of our amazing Dementia UK runners around the course, as well as congratulating them with a finisher’s party and a sports massage for all their hard work. We still have running places available so if you would like to join our #TeamDementiaUK then sign up today. Alternatively, if you are an own place runner then get in touch by clicking the ‘I have my own place’ button below, we would love to welcome you onto the team. We will keep in touch with you, providing plenty of hints and tips about training and fundraising this summer. Please always follow Government advice, particularly around staying home and exercising during this period.

Here, Admiral Nurse Lindsay White tells us why she ran the Brighton Marathon to raise funds for Dementia UK.
It is estimated that on the Isle of Wight, where I work, there are 3,000 people living with dementia. When my family heard I was taking on the Brighton Marathon they knew it would be a big challenge, but also knew how much being able to raise funds for Dementia UK meant to me.
