The event

Over 12,000 runners take part in the marathon, enjoying a course that starts in Preston Park, snakes its way through the city centre, along the glorious seafront and finishes at the iconic Madeira Drive in front of thousands of cheering spectators.

The course bests for the men and women are well under 2hrs10min and 2:29, making it the second-fastest marathon in the UK. It is also the second-largest marathon in the UK and eighth-largest in Europe.

Since the first Brighton Marathon in 2010, the Brighton Marathon has grown dramatically to become the Brighton Marathon Weekend attracting larger numbers of runners and spectators each year to the city.

This event would suit first time marathon runners, or those going for a PB!

Christina recently completed her first ever marathon as she was part of the BTA virtual London Marathon team.

Never in my life did I ever think I’d get a medal for completing a marathon, I feel a bit choked. It’s been an amazing journey and I’ve met some amazing people along the way with some amazing stories. This is just the start of something new. 

Challenge yourself – it’s the best feeling ever!
