Brighton Marathon 2019 Write up

We would like to say congratulations to the 10 CRY runners that took part in the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 14th April 2019, and a huge thank you for their kind support and fantastic fundraising efforts! We do hope they enjoyed the experience.

It was a lively atmosphere, as is always the case for this wonderful seaside event. This energy, along with the tremendous amount of supporters, really helped the runners along the course. Especially towards the end of the route, where the crowds cheered all the runners across the finish line in challenging windy conditions.

Over 10,000 runners took to the start that saw them do a loop of Preston Park, then down to the seafront to perform a large scenic stretch, before passing the ever lively Brighton Pier on the final run to the finish line. 

Again, we would like to say a huge thank you to the team for all their fantastic efforts with training, raising awareness and fundraising. We really appreciate all of their support. We would also like to say a big thank you to all of our supporters who gave up their time to cheer on the CRY team.  

The 10 runners that made up the CRY Team were:

Phil Sweatman (Pictured: running in memory of Ben Hammond); Rebecca Thomas; Sian Harrison (running in memory of Gary Pope); Amy Varney (in memory of Marni); Amy Whiffen; Karen Saunders (in memory of Freya Cox); David Freeborough (in memory of Helen Watson); Anne Lovett (in memory of Ben Hammond); Matthew Sear-Black (in memory of Vincenzo Vetere); Jason Mitchell (in memory of Jake Wood).
