Running For Good - Starr Trust Supported by Rubix VT Half Marathon

We were delighted to have been chosen as the charity beneficiary for the Rubix VT Half Marathon and would like to thank all the runners who took part to raise funds for the Starr Trust. Rubix VT kindly donated a number of places to us and Luca, Max, Simon, Fran, Kevin, Matt, Bea, Tilley, Rachael, Robin and Silje did us proud!

The Starr Trust were pleased to welcome Ambassadors Fran Dirand and Simon Haffenden of Brighton i360 along with long term friend of the Starr Trust Daley Thompson CBE to join us at the Rubix VT VIP Reception at the DoubleTree by Hilton. Guests and runners were treated to some uplifting music by local band ‘Illusions’.

Fundraising Manager Rosie Molloy said: “Huge thanks to Nick, Ian and the whole team at Rubix VT for their kind support and generous hospitality at the DoubleTree by Hilton for their spectators gathering. The Little Jasmine Spa team giving massages was the perfect touch to welcome back the runners!”

Nick Poyner, Director of Rubix VT said: "Huge well done to all the Brighton Half Marathon runners from the Rubix team! We were thrilled to be part of a day filled with boundless energy, community spirit, and the sheer joy of crossing the finish line. We have immense respect for the sport of running, particularly when it serves such noble causes such as our chosen charity, the Starr Trust."
