The staff from Worthing Hospital’s physiotherapy department plan to complete the South Downs Way route on Saturday (June 25) by running in a relay.
Each runner will complete at least seven miles of the 100-mile route.
Nicky Sykes, senior physiotherapist, said: “It’s quite a challenge and I think people are feeling a mixture of trepidation and excitement.
“We’ve been training in pairs – some of us are fitter than others so some will be running longer distances along the South Downs Way than others.”
The team hope to raise £500 for the physiotherapy department, and plan to spend the money on smaller items of equipment to improve patient treatment, such as exercise aids.
Nicky added: “The idea started as a bit of fun for the department and we thought it was a great way to try to raise money for those items which NHS budgets simply don’t cover.”
