On Race Day there will be a RunBrighton.com Pace Team powered by 2XU. They have been recruited locally; most of them affiliated to one of the various Brighton-based running clubs. They all have marathon experience and are ready to guide you to the finish. There will be pace setters for each 15 minutes, from 3 hours to 5 hours. More information about where they will be in the corrals and what they will be wearing, will be available soon.
You will also be able to chat to them in the Event Village and pick their brains on your pacing and the course.
Marathon-Photos.com, the Official Race Photographers will be placing photographers around the course to take pictures of you while you are running so look out for the ‘smile you are on camera signs’. These are indicated with a yellow smiley face icon on the course map.
