The London 2 Brighton Challenge is fast becoming the UK’s biggest Ultra-Marathon challenge.
Whether you run, walk or jog it, this Ultra-Marathon is your challenge your way!

Join Team Lymphoma

The London2Brighton Challenge is now one of the UK’s greatest endurance events with no gimmicks, no contrived obstacles, and is achievable.

It’s a journey you won’t forget; starting with a training regime some months beforehand, through to the excitement at the start line, and eventually, with weary limbs and the Brighton coast in view, celebration and an overwhelming sense of achievement.

With good preparation, a focussed training plan and on-event support, the challenge is an achievable goal no matter what your fitness and experience at the outset. Many will have a target time of 24 hours for the 100km, with day and night time sections, but you can go at your own pace.

How can I raise money?

Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are great ways to get out your fundraising challenge to your friends and family. If you’re fundraising online, how about using Facebook to share your fundraising page link, Twitter to update on your training progress or Instragram to capture those challenging early starts and the excitement on the day? Make sure to be persistent with asking for donations - try posting at different times of the day, and just before and after your fundraising event.

Your workplace or school are ideal places to raise money. Let your colleagues or classmates know about your fundraising challenge, put up posters of you training and talk about our charity. Cake sales always go down a treat - get baking and make sure to bring a sponsorship form along to work with you.

Your local club or sports centre are other great places to promote your fundraising event and raise money. Take along a sponsorship form and tell your group about what you’re getting up to. Consider putting up posters of you training or bring along some cakes to sell - although try not to bring out any confectionary just before a sports class!
