The Brighton Marathon Weekend is an exciting three-day running event in one of Britain’s most cosmopolitan cities, comprising The Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens Mini Mile Races on the Saturday, the BM10k and Brighton Marathon races on the Sunday and the Event Village on Brighton beach, which is open Friday-Sunday.
This is an event for the whole family with something for everyone of all ages and abilities.
The participant fields for all three races grow every year while over 150,000 spectators take to the city streets on Race Day to show their support and cheer the Marathon and 10k runners on.
The Brighton Marathon was founded by former international athlete Tim Hutchings and by former Brighton club athlete, Tom Naylor. The event is organised by the Grounded Events Company ltd. The first running of the race took place on 18th April 2010.
Since its inauguration, the Brighton Marathon has grown dramatically to 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 eighth-largest in Europe.
