The race itself was fantastic... Support and marshalls around the course were amazing, a very local feel. The finish of the race is along the promenade and with the weather being nice it made it that little bit more special. I really enjoyed this race and would return to it in the future. Ryan B

Race itself was amazing. Course is a little hilly for the first 10 miles but nothing to be scared of. No steep hills at all. Scenery is breathtaking. I love Brighton. Aid stations are extremely well marshalled and are frequent... What is outstanding about the event is the support. There are so many people to cheer you on. Even in the furthest parts of the course when you need the extra boost the most. I can’t thank enough the residents of Brighton and all that came to support the runners. You can feel that the city is excited for the event. Michael P

Good marathon, a few hills early on the course, but the scenery is beautiful. It was wonderful to run along the coast. Great local support as well with families giving out sweets and oranges. Andrew W
