A team of twenty four runners from Bear Patrol the networking group for bears and their friends ran in the Brighton Half Marathon in February. They raised a magnificent £9,560 for the Sussex Beacon.

2013 was the the Brighton Half Marathon’s 23rd anniversary. The race was originally started by local running clubs until The Sussex Beacon took over in 2004. How times have changed. The race which originally started in the Brighton Marina car park with just 200 runners has grown over the last sixteen years to over 10,000 entrants and the event is now the largest running event in the South East.

The Half Marathon is the primary fundraiser for The Sussex Beacon, a clinical care centre for men and women living with HIV.
