Time is running out to sign up for the 8k Undercliff Run for Women

RUNNERS only have a few days left to sign up to an event raising money for domestic abuse victims in Sussex.

Registrations to take part in the 8k Undercliff Run for Women, the 15th fundraising run supporting RISE – Brighton and Hove's domestic abuse charity, close at 11.55pm on September 25.

The annual run is back on October 16 at 10 am at the Saltdean Undercliff after two years of pandemic induced restrictions, which saw a virtual race in 2020 and a smaller event in 2021.

All the money raised through sponsorship will go directly to services supporting families from communities in Sussex who are affected by domestic abuse.

RISE's services include a domestic abuse helpline, counselling and therapy, support groups and a refuge space for those in urgent need.

The charity's fundraising and engagement manager, Ava Harding, said: "We are so pleased to have our flagship 8K Undercliff Run For Women back this year at full capacity. Over 200 women have already signed up, and we are so looking forward to this joyful, celebratory event.

"Now in its 15th year, this fantastic event is vitally important for the continuation of the crisis support and emotional care provided by RISE, which helps women and families in our local communities throughout Brighton, Hove and surrounding areas to recover and rebuild their lives.”
