We are delighted that for a fifth time, we will be title sponsor of the 2020 Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People Mini Mile Races!
The event will be staged the day before the 2020 Brighton Marathon on Saturday 18th April, covering a one mile distance at Preston Park, with over 3,000 children taking part! It’s free to sign up too, thanks to the generosity of race sponsor, Gatwick Airport.
Every day around 10 young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer. Despite improving survival rates, cancer is the leading cause of death in children, teenagers and young adults. All the money raised from The Cancer Research for UK Children and Young People Mini Mile Races will go towards research into cancers affecting children, teens and young adults. With your help we will find cures and kinder treatments for young people facing cancer. Click here for more information
The races are open to 7 - 17 year olds giving youngsters a fantastic opportunity to capture the atmosphere of a mass participation race. Races will be categorised by age and gender as follows: 7-11, under 13, under 15 and under 18 years of age. However, there will be some mixed races if there is demand for them.
All finishers will receive a medal and a goodie bag after they cross the line and all winners will be presented with prizes in front of the crowds. Every runner will be chip timed and the results will be presented on the website.
