THE 10TH MID SUSSEX VIRTUAL MARATHON & HALF MARATHON WEEKEND 1ST-31ST MAY 2021.
Due to the on-going pandemic, the Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend will now be a virtual event once again.
Simon Adby, Race Director said “Our highest priority is the service and experience we provide to our runners and we did not deem it possible to confidently plan a live event with there still being so much uncertainty about the circumstances within which we would be able to operate. Substantial investment is required a minimum of 6 months in advance of staging a live 3-day event and being a not-for-profit event we deemed the current uncertainty to be too much of a risk.
Despite all the odds, The Virtual Mid Sussex Marathon in 2020 was a complete success, with over 400 people taking part, most managing the full 26.2 miles over the month. The flexibility provided the challenge needed for serious runners whilst giving people who never would have believed they would complete a marathon a chance to experience the exhilarating feeling of achieving something amazing.” He added. “This is the 10th year so we want even more people to get involved. We don’t mind how old you are, how experienced you are or even how you do it! Walk, run, hop, skip or in a Wheelchair its up to you, and the more creative, the better!“
As challenging as ever, runners complete a marathon or half marathon distance during May 2021. For the full Mid Sussex Marathon experience, this can be completed over 3 consecutive days (Marathon: 10 mile, 10 mile, 10 km; Half Marathon: 5 mile, 5 mile, 5 km), or take the challenge at your own pace across the whole month.
Participants will receive a fabulous Mid Sussex Marathon T-Shirt and our coveted 3-part medal!
The Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend concludes on Monday 25th May with a 10k race in Burgess Hill. Find out more
