The Brighton Marathon was founded by former international athlete Tim Hutchings and by former Brighton club athlete, Tom Naylor. The first race took place on 18th April 2010. Since then, the Brighton Marathon has become the Brighton Marathon Weekend.
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 twelfth largest in Europe.
The Brighton Marathon Weekend kicks off at the Event Village on the beach, which is located next to the Finish Line at Madeira Drive. On Friday 13 and Saturday 14 April, Race Pack Collection will take place here as well as a range of things to see, do and buy including talks with the experts, pre and post-race massage, retail, food & bars, live screens and exhibitors. It’s free to enter, so friends, family and the local community can all come along and enjoy the atmosphere.
Sunday 15 April is Race Day: the Event Village will become a hive of activity and celebration as runners reunite with friends and family and enjoy the live footage, eating, drinking and fantastic atmosphere. Spectators can also make use of the Grandstand seating at the Finish to cheer the participants home.
As you can see it’s a very exciting event, and to have 10 places is amazing. We would like to invite applications from our supporters to take up this great opportunity, and raise a minimum of £500 per place.
