Run for Resolution - 2018

FANCY A CHALLENGE for 2018?
running for PTSD

 

Do you fancy running and raising funds for PTSD Resolution?

 

The Great North Run on the 9th September 2018 is the biggest half marathon in the UK and the  World with over 57000 runners taking part in the famous 13.1 mile run, where participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields. The race was devised by former Olympic 10,000 metre bronze medallist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.

Although a high profile event for elite runners, four-time Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah won the Great North Run 2016 and became the first man to achieve three consecutive wins, it is for all abilities and ages with many using the run to raise money for charity and take part in fancy dress.

PTSD Resolution is a charity helping veterans, territorial army and reservists who are struggling to settle back into a normal work and family life because of military trauma suffered during service in the armed forces. So why not set yourself a 2018 challenge and run for us, while raising money for a worthwhile cause.

The first running of the race took place on 18th April 2010.   Since it’s inauguration, the Brighton Marathon has dramatically developed to become the Brighton Marathon Weekend.

The course bests for the men and women are well under 2hrs10min and 2:29, making it the second fastest marathon in the UK. It is also the second largest marathon in the UK and twelfth largest in Europe.

The Brighton Marathon Weekend kicks off at the Event Village on the beach, which is located next to the Finish Line at Madeira Drive. 

On Sunday 15th April (Race Day), at the new time of 9.45am in Preston Park.  The Event Village will become a hive of activity and celebration as runners reunite with friends and family and enjoy the live footage, eating, drinking and fantastic atmosphere.
