About the Brighton Marathon

With roaring crowds and a fantastic atmosphere, Brighton Marathon is one of Europe’s favourite 26.2 milers. The course winds through the iconic city centre before finishing on the seafront, where runners can celebrate with friends and family in the Event Village and enjoy live screens, food, bars and of course, deck chairs!

Since its inauguration in 2010, Brighton has dramatically developed with course bests for the men and women well under 2hrs10min and 2:29, making it the second fastest marathon in the UK. A must-do event for any seasoned marathon runners!

Be a part of the unmissable Brighton Marathon Weekend!

Please note the new event date - 12th September 2021!
