Falcon Student Challenge

Brighton Marathon 2024

We are taking part in the Brighton Marathon as part of #TeamStroke

We joined #TeamStroke for the Brighton Marathon 2024.


As a group of students from Falcon FX, we wanted to challenge ourselves to running a marathon with only 6 months to prepare. We wanted to expand our comfort zones and apply to our training the principles of discipline, consistency, and accountability we have been taught at Falcon.

This is our way of giving back, both to the Falcon community for helping us become the people we are today and the wider community where a stroke can have a devastating impact on any family.

A massive congratulations to all of the runners below for taking on the challenge and please donate to support our cause.

There are over 1.3 million stroke survivors in the UK, with 100,000 strokes happening in the UK each year. That's one stroke every five minutes.

We're here to support people to rebuild their lives after stroke. We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke, so we work with the stroke community to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support. We rely on your support to provide vital services, campaign for better stroke care and fund research into preventative and rehabilitative treatments.

Thank you to our Sponsors
