Everything you need to know about the Brighton Marathon 2018 weekend

Brighton Marathon 2018 comes to town Fri 13 – Sun 15 Apr.

The Brighton Marathon returns for its eighth year this year and looks to be bigger than ever.

The three-day running event kicks off with the Event Village, located next to the finish line in Madeira Drive, which is open for the whole weekend. Here, spectators can celebrate runners and reunite with friends and family as they cross the line on the Sunday. Live screens, talks with experts, pre- and post-run massages, food and drink stalls, and retail stalls will be available as standard all weekend.

There are three races taking place: A Cancer Research UK kids & teens mini mile race (for children aged 7-17 on Sat 14 Apr), BM10k (9am on Sun 15 Apr), and the main event, Brighton Marathon itself, which starts at 9.45am in Preston Park on the Sunday. The roads will be closed off for the duration of the event, enabling crowds to cheer on the runners on the day, with the runners ending up at the finish line in Madeira Drive.

The city comes alive during Brighton Marathon. Make sure you don’t miss it and head down to the beach to cheer on your friends, family and local community.
