Active House Solutions have delivered the event for 3 years and we are now planning for it’s seventh year. The running event is staged over three races in the Mid Sussex towns of East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill.
Participants are able to run in any race, thus giving them the opportunity to complete a full marathon distance of 26.2 miles in the three days.
The 2017 event, delivered on behalf of Mid Sussex District Council and the three respective Town Councils, saw over 1,500 runners cross the finish line over the three races. Additionally over 200 junior and adult beginner runners took part in Mid Sussex Mile races that were staged before each of the main races.
