Not a marathon runner? No worries, our series of races provides you with a choice of distances and so caters for the first time runner through to seasoned marathon veterans.
With a 10 Mile Race in East Grinstead and Haywards Heath, a 10K in Burgess Hill, plus a fun run and 1 mile chip timed race on each day of the event. Then of course, a Marathon distance! We make that 10 options to get involved, no excuses!
It was fabulous to see so many people at todays event. We are amazed that entry numbers were up by a massive 25% on last year, clearly running is becoming more and more popular! Congratulations to everyone taking part and to all our dedicated helpers & supporters. We look to seeing you all at Haywards Heath tomorrow.
We are delighted to have physiotherapist partners supporting this year’s Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend to offer sports massages to all participants. A 10-15 minute massage will be available for the donation of £5, with all proceeds going to League of Friends of Horsham Hospital.
Body Health Clinic is currently owned and lead by Graduate Sports Therapist Danielle Peters BSc. MSc. MSST., having taken over from Sam Hewitt in March 2015. The main clinic is based next door to Crawley Martial Arts Centre in Manor Royal and has access to a large Gym and facilities if required for rehabilitation programs making it perfect for those returning back to sports following injury. More recently the clinic has expanded to 2 extra locations in Burgess Hill (Strawberry Vibes) and Hove (Elements Martial Arts Gym) and is constantly growing.
The clinic has practitioners with extensive experience working in a variety of sports from novice to elite sports men and women and is able to tailor their practise to suit everyone. They currently offer Sports Massage, Acupuncture, Rehabilitation, Injury Assessment, Electrotherapy and Pitch side field work.
The physio and osteopathy teams at Crawley & Horsham Hospital (part of Sussex MSK (NHS) Partnership) will also be in attendance over the Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend. The League of Friends services have provided Sussex MSK with an incredible amount of gym equipment to help get our patients back to full fitness, so the team are looking doing their bit to raise money this year. All proceeds from massages over the 3 days will go to League of Friends of Horsham Hospital.
Thank you to Haywards Heath Wisdom Sports who have very generously donated prizes once again this year, including 2 pairs of lightweight and comfortable Trekz Titanium wireless stereo headphones. Stay tuned to find out how you can win a pair!
