Runners, riders and spectators can book and make use of a convenient park and ride service from car parks on the outskirts of the city to the start, and back again from the finish.

You only need to purchase one Park & Ride ticket per car regardless of how many passengers are in your car. The use of the bus is for both spectator and participant alike. No ticket is needed to board the bus, just to park your car.

Brighton Marathon Members will have 24 hours early access for booking. Please check your Membership emails for information.

Last buses will leave Madeira Drive at 16:30 for Mill Road, 17:15 for Brighton Racecourse and 18:15 for The AMEX Stadium.

Buses will not run between 09:30 and 14:00.

Buses will run from sites with a journey time of approx. 20-25 minutes.

All cars must be removed by the closing time listed above. Any cars left past this time risk being towed.

If you are taking part in BM Ride, you cannot take your bike on the bus but you can still purchase a space for your car and cycle to the start and back from the finish. Please see below info for bikes.

Please note that not all Car Parks have toilets available on site.


The shuttle buses will pick participants up from Madeira Drive from 14:00. Please note that if you finish prior to 14:00 you will need to wait for the first bus or make your own way back to the Park and Ride site.


Your pass for your chosen car park will be sent to you by post in the week or two prior to the event. If you do not have this you will be turned away. Please keep it safe.


All buses and Park and Ride sites are suitable for wheelchair users. Buggies are allowed also.

Unfortunately, we cannot allow bicycles on the buses.

However, if you are taking part in BM Ride, you can still purchase a space. We would recommend you park your car in the Mill Road Park & Ride car park and ride your bike down to Preston Park ahead of your start time. You will then need to ride your bike back to the Park & Ride site from the BM Ride finish at Hove Lawns.

Supporters of BM Ride participants are welcome to use the buses which will drop them at Preston Park.


You will need your 2021 Confirmation Number to book your Park and Ride place. If you are a charity participant, a spectator or cannot find your confirmation number, please contact us at and we will be able to assist you.
