Brighton Marathon 2023

Important info:

Event date:

Sunday 2 April 2023

Event location:






With over 12,000 runners taking part, the Brighton Marathon is one of the most popular alternatives to the London Marathon.

The fast, flat course winds through the city of Brighton, taking in glorious coastal views and finishing at the iconic Madeira Drive in front of thousands of cheering spectators! With a host of bands and music along the course you can expect a lively and buzzing atmosphere in one of the country’s most vibrant cities.

April 2023 will see a new route for the Brighton Marathon, which will now no longer run through Shoreham Port! The new route puts the earlier miles on wider, flatter and leafy roads within the city, before heading towards the seafront, making for an easier start to the marathon. This means that the traditionally more difficult part of a marathon, at miles 15-25, will take place within the ultra-supportive community of Hove. Experience even more cheering, motivation and atmosphere to help get you through the 26.2 miles!

Additionally, returning for the 2023 Brighton Marathon is the Race Pack postal delivery, the Bag Drop on race morning and the official finisher's t-shirt!
