Registration is now open for the 2021 virtual event, Mid Sussex Marathon – Set your pace.

For the full Mid Sussex Marathon experience, this can be completed over 3 consecutive days (Marathon: 10 miles, 10 miles, 10 km; Half Marathon: 5 miles, 5 miles, 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.
Simon Adby, Race Director said “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!
Race Participant Samantha Day said of the 2020 virtual race “Well I am blaming the Mid Sussex Marathon. At the beginning of June, I registered for the virtual event, 26.2 miles which I chose to do over three days. I had such a good time and it made me feel so motivated that today I decided to walk 26.2 miles in one day! All good and feeling great…Who knows, you could end up feeling as empowered and motivated as I do and the medals are fab.”
