The Cindy Appleyard Foundation does the 2020 Brighton Half Marathon

Next February the Cindy Appleyard Foundation will be at the Brighton Half Marathon! Ten runners will be running – and raising money – for the charity when the race takes place on February 23rd. The event is one of the first major half marathons in the running calendar and one of the most popular races in the UK. The seafront route makes the most of Brighton’s beauty – passing the Pavilion Pier, the Royal Pavilion, Hove’s colourful beach huts, the British Airways i360 and, of course, the sea.

If you’re interested in running the half marathon for the Cindy Appleyard Foundation, volunteering for us at the race or just popping along to say hello, then get in touch.
