“I’m hoping a lot of people will come out to support Hospice in the Weald this year because it was brilliant for Matt and brilliant for me. To help fund the ongoing work, it’s just wonderful. I want others to get the support and love I got.” – Ali, who’s partner Matt – a keen runner – was cared for at the Cottage Hospice before he died.
Our classic 5k and 10k courses are unchanged and take you on a familiar scenic route past popular local landmarks such as the Spa Valley Railway Line and The High Rocks.
Our NEW half marathon is an undulating route, starting with the 5k and 10k runners before venturing down into Groombridge and Eridge then re-joining the end of the 10k route as you head to the finish line.
Our Family Fun Run theme is Hospice Heroes!
The route takes families on an adventure through the common and around Wellington Rocks and children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite hero as they dodge the water. Participants have the option of completing 1 or 2 loops of the route before receiving their finishers medal.
We ask all Hospice Runners over the age of 13 to raise sponsorship for their run but we would love for younger participants to get involved too with the help of friends and family.
We rely on your sponsorship for the success of Hospice Run; this year we are aiming to raise over £60,000 to support patients and their loved ones.
Our fundraising team are here every step of the way to give you easy tips and tricks to reach your fundraising target.
Runners that raise over a certain amount will be eligible for an exclusive Hospice Run gift!
For safety reasons, wearing headphones is not permitted as we want to make sure you can hear any safety instructions from our marshals on the route.
Bone-conducting headsets are permitted.
To ensure the safety of all our participants we work with traffic management company Amber Langis to close the roads for the event.
We will also have our wonderful marshals with phones or radios placed in strategic positions around the course.
Medical professionals will be present on all routes and at the event village.
Please listen to marshal instructions and be aware that marshals can only advise motorist and do not have the power to stop traffic. Emergency vehicles will be given access to the route.
Yes! Our event village is at the Lower Common Cricket Ground. We’ll have a variety of food vendors, music from DJ Lee, and lots of fun activities and a bouncy castle to keep the kids busy!
Our chip timing company Nice Works will upload all run times to their website shortly after the event.
Given the limited number of spaces for the event, entry fees are non-refundable unless we change the event venue or date.
If you are unable to attend Hospice Run, your registration fee will be accepted as a donation
