Countdown to the Brighton Marathon

Our work depends on the amazing generosity of our supporters. Their fundraising makes what we do possible and means we can make a bigger difference every year.

With the Brighton Marathon round the corner, we caught up with four of the incredible Grassroots Runners: Nina, Steven, Lucy, and John. They spoke to us about the ups and downs of training for a marathon, whether there have been any surprises along the way and how they’re feeling about the big day.


Having recently started a summer internship at Grassroots, Nina is running the Brighton Marathon with her partner Max.
