MEMBERSHIP: Will Race Packs for additional discounted Brighton Marathon Weekend places I purchase as part of my membership, be sent to me?
Yes, if you purchase entries for other Brighton Marathon Weekend events for friends and family (e.g. Mini Mile, BM10k or BM Ride), you can arrange for these to be sent to your address. Alternatively, you can arrange for these to be collected at the Beach Village as normal. We are unable to send to additional addresses.
MEMBERSHIP: What if the event is cancelled or does not take place?
If the event is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances out of our control (e.g. weather conditions), your membership will be extended to make up for the year that was missed.
MEMBERSHIP: Is there a deadline to sign up for the 2021 Brighton Marathon as a member?
Yes, you will have to register your place by 7th March 2022.
MEMBERSHIP: If I’ve transferred my Brighton Marathon entry to someone else, where will their Race Pack and Goody Bag be delivered?
The new marathon entry holder will be able to have their race pack sent to their address.
MEMBERSHIP: If I can’t find someone to transfer my entry to, can I get a refund for that year or defer that place and extend my membership?
No, we are not offering refunds or deferrals on membership entries. As your membership means that the place is not lost, you will not be entitled to a refund.
MEMBERSHIP: I normally sign up for a charity each year, does being a member mean I can’t do that?
As a member your entry will be classified as a general entry and not a charity entry. If you wish to fundraise we recommend you create a fundraising profile with JustGiving in order to support your chosen charity.
MEMBERSHIP: As part of my Brighton Marathon Membership, do I still have to register online for Brighton Marathon each year?
Yes, although you have guaranteed your Brighton Marathon entry through your membership, you are legally required to complete the registration form for the event each year.
