Reasons to Volunteer #2

“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.”

Whats New For 2018 #4

The Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend is now all set to include 9 events and we are excited to announce the popular Haywards Heath 10 Mile will follow a new route.

The 2 lap format will continue to start on South Road but a new section of the route has been designed to take runners through Beech Hurst Gardens and Bolnore Village to avoid the busy Traunstein Way, providing a safer route for participants and volunteer marshals.

Whats new for 2018? #2

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?
