Brighton Marathon

Over 12,000 runners take part in the marathon each April, enjoying a course that starts in Preston Park at 9.45am, snakes its way through Brighton city centre, along the glorious seafront and finishes at the iconic Madeira Drive in front of thousands of cheering spectators.

Celebrate with friends and family in the huge Beach Village complete with shopping, food, drink and big screen.

Sign up with a general entry or support a charity close to your heart by taking a charity place with one of our many partners.

This is a marathon like no other with a finish like no other – don’t miss out on this lifetime experience.

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 eighth-largest in Europe.



The BM10k event starts from the same start as the Brighton Marathon in Preston Park, just 45 minutes beforehand at 9.00am.

The course is flat, scenic and great for a PB, taking participants through the city centre and finishing just before the marathon on the seafront.

This is a great event for all runners, from beginners to the super-fast athletes who want to run a fast time offering everyone an amazing experience and atmosphere.

Each year we see many groups and families take part in the BM10k and the marathon, allowing 10k participants to start in the same park and then cheer their marathon runners on after they have finished.

BM Ride

The BM Ride is a 50km cycling event taking place on the very rarely closed roads of Brighton & Hove. 

Starting ahead of the BM10k and the Brighton Marathon, the BM Ride offers riders of varying abilities the opportunity to enjoy the streets of Brighton & Hove, traffic-free over a 50k distance.

Start in Preston Park, take in the city sights before hitting the seafront and finishing by Hove Lawns. It’s an early start but worth it for the sunrise!

Whether a keen cyclist, cycling with your family or looking for a new challenge, this event has something for everyone. Faster riders can start at the front whilst others follow on; this is not a race!

Mini Mile Races

Getting kids outdoors, active and having fun together is something we are passionate about at Brighton Marathon Weekend.

Taking place the day before the Brighton Marathon and BM10k, 7-17 year olds can enjoy all the fun and atmosphere of the Mini Mile Races in Preston Park.

Entries are FREE! We want to be as accessible to as many children as possible and give them all a chance to take part and experience the Brighton Marathon Weekend.

The Mini Mile Village offers loud speakers, great food, drink and an array of fun activities to do together before, during and after the event.


Beach Village And Expo

The Brighton Marathon Weekend kicks off at the Beach Village on Brighton seafront, which is located next to the marathon and 10k Finish Line at Madeira Drive.

On the Friday and Saturday, Race Pack Collection takes place here as well as the Expo with a range of things to see, do and buy including talks with the experts, pre and post-race massage, retail, food, bars and live screen.

It’s free to enter, so friends, family and the local community can all come along and enjoy the atmosphere.

On the Sunday (Race Day), the Beach Village will become a hive of activity and celebration as runners reunite with friends and family and enjoy the live footage on the big screen, the Charity Village, food, bars and an atmosphere like no other at a running event.
