MSMW 2020 Virtual Race Team Challenge

Your club or organisation is giving you the opportunity to complete the Virtual Mid Sussex Marathon or Half Marathon between now and 1st July at exclusive discounted entry prices. 

You have the chance to compete against your fellow club members or colleagues and at the end of the event we will send your club / organisation a set of team results so you can see how you all did. It really couldn’t be easier, just follow these simple instructions and you will soon be the proud owner of our fabulous medals! 

Choose your event

You have the choice between a Marathon or Half Marathon. Don’t worry, you don’t need to complete them in one attempt, in fact you could break down the distance into several intervals. It doesn’t matter how long it takes or where you go, just make sure you complete your chosen distance by the end of Wednesday 1st July. Why not take on the event in its authentic 3-day format; 10 miles + 10 miles + 10K for the Marathon, or 5 miles + 5 miles + 5K for the Half Marathon!

Will I get a medal?

Not just one medal, you will get four! The annual Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend is usually held over 3 days in East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill. We hold multiple events, including the signature 3-day Marathon or Half Marathon. Each day we hold a 10 Mile and 5 Mile or 10K and 5k race, enabling participants running all 3 days to complete either 26.2 or 13.1 miles respectively. We award medals for each of the 3 town races plus a special commemorative medal for the Marathon or Half Marathon. We had to cancel our usual event this year due to Covid-19, which is why we decided to create the MSMW Virtual Race. Our medals had already be made so that is why you will receive 4 medals! Simple isn’t it?! 

How To Enter
