Race Day

The 2018 BM10k will take place on Sunday 15 April at the new time of 9:00am in Preston Park, Brighton.

Participant Instructions

Your 2018 Participant Instructions are your essential guide to the event as a participant and will provide you with all of the important information you need including details of race pack collection, baggage procedure, the course, the Event Village, medical advice and more.

These will be emailed directly to you in the weeks preceding the event and made available to read here on the website. Please read them and familiarise yourself with them.

Confirmation Email

When you sign up you will receive a confirmation email, confirming your place. Please keep this safe and file it, as you will need it to collect your Race Pack. It will also be re-sent in the weeks preceding the event – this will be from ‘Grounded Events Company’.

If you need to change your details on your entry, please log back in here with the email and password you used to sign up and amend as necessary: myevents.active.com 

Race Pack Collection

All participants in the BM10k must collect their Race Packs from the Event Village on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 April 2018.

Start Corrals

You will be able to select your start corral when you collect your race pack.
We have two colour coded corrals available and you should choose the corral you start from based upon your predicted finishing time.
Your finishing time is worked out based on your chip time – and your chip time starts when you cross the start line, and not when the first runners start.
Full information will be available in your Participant Instructions about the corral times, colours and what time they open on Race Day.

The Course

The 2018 course map is available to view online. Please note the new start time for 2018, of 9:00am.

Mobile App

The 2018 mobile app will be released in March 2018. This will provide users with an interactive course map for tracking runners on the course, spectator information, results, the Participant Guide, FAQs and more. Please note that your runner number will not be added until you have collected your Race Pack from the Event Village.

Medical Advice

Your safety and wellbeing is of the utmost importance to us.

No matter your experience or ability, please take time to read our medical advice before you begin your training. It’s important to not only assess your physical ability, but to find out more about energy supplements, fluids, fuel and whether any medications may have an impact on your training.

We want to get you to the finish line safely and sensibly.
