Today, more than 12,500 runners will descend on the seaside town today to take part in this year’s Brighton Marathon and Brighton Marathon 10k (BM10K).

What is the route for the Brighton Marathon?

With thousands of participants due to travel to the start on Race Day from outside of the city, the organisers have trialied a new start time of 9:45am.

And along with this, changes have been made to the route, to help improve our runners’ experience by removing narrow sections of the route

North Street and St James’ Street will not be included in the routes.

The route will take them from Preston Park, through the city centre, all along the coast road towards Roedean, to return along the seafront to Shoreham Power Station before finally completely the loop just by Brighton Palace Pier on Madeira Drive

Brighton Buses will be able to maintain their usual Race Day service.
