Run the Brighton marathon for the Samaritans

Besi Besemar January 26, 2017

Brighton Hove and District Samaritans are calling for a different type of volunteer to sign up for the Brighton Marathon on 9th April 2017.

They have five charity places to fill on their team and are looking for budding runners to join them in the race along the streets of Brighton and Hove, helping to raise money and the profile of the organisation along the route.

Registration for the Marathon normally costs £138.00 but Samaritan team members can sign up for just £25.00.

All they ask is for all volunteer runners to commit to raising as much sponsorship as they can for Brighton Hove and District Samaritans and to wear the Samaritans vests to show their support. Spectators will then be able to cheer them on knowing they are running for Samaritans.

If anyone is interested in volunteering to race for Samaritans, please email: and get your charity running shoes on this April.

You can call Samaritans free anytime from any phone on 116 123, or email: or view: or call Brighton, Hove and District Samaritans on 01273 772277.
