The Brighton Marathon will start at 09:45 in Preston Park. You will need to arrive at least one hour early to allow ample time for warming up, finding the baggage trucks and using the toilet facilities before the race begins.
Expect a fast marathon route that takes you around the sights of the city while providing great vantage points for friends and family.

The marathon is just one part of the Brighton Marathon Weekend, an event that also encompasses The Mini Mile Races, the Brighton 10K and the Brighton Marathon Exhibition.
The Event Village, situated on the beach beside Madeira Drive, is a hub with plenty of beach based wow-factor over the three day event. A destination in its own right, the Village is the perfect place to support the amazing runners and really soak up the events' atmosphere.
