‘We are delighted to be the chosen charity for the Mid Sussex Marathon
in 2020. We would love those taking part to raise funds to support
the NSPCC’s work, including our Speak out Stay safe programme which visits
primary schools across Sussex, helping children aged 5-11 to recognise
abuse, understand it’s never their fault, and know how to speak out if they
need help. It costs just £3 to speak to one child, so any funds runners are
able to raise by taking part in this unique event really will make a

“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.”
In response to the increasing popularity of the Mid Sussex Mile, this year chip timing is being introduced to the event. As with the Weekend’s long-distance events, all Mile entrants will wear a timing chip in order to get an accurate finishing time. So what’s your PB?
