    1. I wish to run in the Brighton Marathon 2018 and to raise funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. I understand the minimum sponsorship for this marathon is £450 (excluding Gift Aid and registration fee).
    2. At the time of writing I am not aware of anything that is likely to prevent me from training for and taking part in the race. If I am awarded an ABF The Soldiers' Charity Golden Bond entry and unable to run for any reason, I will let you know as soon as possible so that my entry can be given to another runner.
    3. I attach details of my running history, my training and fundraising plans.
  • Type your name to agree to the above terms and conditions.
  • Enter today's date.
  • Please include brief details of relevant achievements including previous marathons, and other long-distance races showing the dates and times recorded. You will not be overlooked simply because you have not previously completed a marathon.
  • Include here details of any fundraising targets you have achieved in the past; state the sum you aim to raise for The Soldiers’ Charity (minimum £450); and describe your plan for achieving it. We select our runners on their ability to fundraising as we want to use this event to raise as much money as possible for soldiers, former soldiers and their families and so please concentrate on this section.
