About Brighton Marathon

From the start line buzz in picturesque Preston Park to the finish line ecstasy along Brighton's stunning seafront, the Brighton Marathon will carry you through the vibrant city streets and across the panoramic vista of Ovingdean cliffs for a run you'll never forget. Whether you’re looking to finish your first marathon, are pushing for a personal best, or just love the thrill of live runs, the Brighton Marathon’s buzzing atmosphere will keep you moving the whole way round.

Whatever your reason, your support means local families who know they don’t have long together have the chance to live life to the full and say goodbye in the way that is right for them.

Brighton Marathon route map

With a stunning seaside backdrop, Brighton is home to one of the best marathons in the UK.

From Preston Park you’ll hit the seafront and head out to Ovingdean, before coming back through the city and out to Portslade. Re-joining the promenade at Hove, it’s a flat run to the finish on Madeira Drive.
