Brighton Marathon

Take part in the Brighton Marathon.

The Brighton marathon offers an unforgettable experience with the best views of the city and an atmosphere like no other.

The flat course makes it perfect for runners looking for a quicker race. Thousands sign up each year to chase down that elusive PB or to tick it off the bucket list.

The route:

The race starts at Preston Park, and travels into Withdean before turning back down the London Road towards the city. Once past the Pavilion, the route takes you up into Kemptown and follows the coast to Ovingdean before a final turn back for a breath-taking view of the city, following the coast into Hove before finishing at Hove Lawns in front of thousands of cheering spectators.

10K option for runners:
