Celebrating our 10th Year!
Taking place from 1st May to 31st May 2021
We’ll be back with a bang, so save the date and make sure you’re part of the action!
The 10th Mid Sussex Virtual Marathon & Half Marathon Weekend 1st-31st May 2021.
Registration is now open for our 2021 virtual event, Mid Sussex Marathon – Set your pace.
As challenging as ever, runners complete a marathon or half marathon distance during May 2021. For the full Mid Sussex Marathon experience, this can be completed over 3 consecutive days (Marathon: 10 mile, 10 mile, 10 km; Half Marathon: 5 mile, 5 mile, 5 km), or take the challenge at your own pace across the whole month.
Participants will receive a fabulous Mid Sussex Marathon T-Shirt and our coveted 3-part medal!
Simon Adby, Race Director said “Despite all the odds, The Virtual Mid Sussex Marathon in 2020 was a complete success, with over 400 people taking part, most managing the full 26.2 miles over the month. The flexibility provided the challenge needed for serious runners whilst giving people who never would have believed they would complete a marathon a chance to experience the exhilarating feeling of achieving something amazing.” He added. “This is the 10th year so we want even more people to get involved. We don’t mind how old you are, how experienced you are or even how you do it! Walk, run, hop, skip or in a Wheelchair its up to you, and the more creative, the better!”
The MSMW2021 Virtual Race will provide an opportunity for everyone to participate in all of our unique events. The event will be open from 1st May to 31st May. Once entered into your chosen distance, complete the challenge in your favourite location and then send us recorded evidence of the distance and time completed. You will be entered onto the leader board and sent your beautiful, bespoke, commemorative medal in the post. If you have been missing the racing environment, then this is an opportunity to test yourself and engage with fellow competitors.
The ultimate challenge is the 3-day Marathon but if you’re new to running then why not take on the Half Marathon option?
