AHS Wellbeing Community Events

Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend

AHS Wellbeing (formerly Active House Solutions) were first commissioned in 2015 by Places Leisure to place Simon Adby in a strategic and operational management role for the Mid Sussex Marathon.

The running event is staged over three races in the Mid Sussex towns of East Grinstead (10 miles), Haywards Heath (10 miles) and Burgess Hill (10 kilometres). Participants are able to run in any individual race, or complete all 3 races, giving them the unique opportunity to complete a full marathon distance of 26.2 miles in the three days.

Active House Solutions take direct responsibility for the Race Management contractor, Nice Work, along with procurement and management of other services, including event marketing, venues, catering, toilet facilities, physiotherapy, warm-up instructors, public address and event entertainment.

In addition, overseeing the extensive stakeholder relations that are involved in managing the event, including liaison with: District and Town council officers, venue hosts, sponsors, VIP’s, and dignitaries. Approximately 50 volunteers were recruited for the three-day event, to marshal each of the three courses.

The event, delivered on behalf of Mid Sussex District Council and the three respective Town Councils, attracts over 1,600 runners, with over 200 junior and adult beginner runners taking part in Mid Sussex Mile races that are staged before each of the main races.

AHS Wellbeing have since been engaged to deliver the event annually to this date.
