The run raises vital funds for the Stroke Association to help them rebuild the lives of those who have suffered a stroke and provide support for their families.

How do I volunteer and what does it involve?

The resolution run ‘relies on volunteers’ to make it a success. Volunteers are needed to; cheer on participants, marshal runners around the routes and register participants before the race begins.

You can apply by filling in a form on the Stroke Association’s website, found here: https://www.stroke.org.uk/webform/volunteer-resolution-run

When does it take place?

Race day falls on Sunday, March 8. The warm up for the run starts at 9.50am at Marine Crescent Green.

The race then starts at 10am

What is the route?

Runners will start and finish the route in Marine Crescent Green by Goring Beach Huts. Where they will find the welcome desk, a first aid area, toilets and parking in the surrounding areas.

After the first kilometre, which takes place along Marine Crescent in Goring, the route goes directly along West Parade following through to Marine Parade along Worthing sea front.

The turning point for those running the 5k is just before Worthing Premier Inn, Marine Parade - on the day this will be marked by signs and marshals.

For those running the 10k race, the 5k mark is located at the end of the Marine Parade and will have a water stop. Runners will then loop back along the same route they came, running the final kilometre of the race in a loop round Marine Crescent and along Goring beach huts.
