Hosted by the respective Town Councils in East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill, the Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend brings together local volunteers, businesses, community groups and organisations, as well as families and individuals.
In addition to the Marathon series, a fun run and one mile race will take place on each day of the event. Offering something for families, children and adults the event presents a perfect fund raising opportunity for causes close to your heart.
If you would like to volunteer to help out at the event or have a local business and want to get involved, please get in touch
“There are a number of reasons why I volunteer. Volunteering can help gain confidence by giving you the chance to try something new and build a real sense of achievement. What you do also has a real and valuable positive affect on people, communities and society in general so you feel like you make a difference. Through volunteering I have met many different kinds of people and made a number of friends. It helps me to feel part of a community, something outside of friends and family.
All volunteering opportunities have allowed me to learn new skills and gain experience, sometimes there are even opportunities to gain new qualifications. I have found that through volunteering you can challenge yourself to try something different, achieve personal goals, practice using your skills and discover hidden talents. But most importantly you have fun! Most volunteers have a great time, regardless of why they do it.”Simon Kingsley-Young
