We are proud that we have managed to develop such a fast marathon route that still takes you around the sights of the city while providing great vantage points for your friends and family.
Below is the 2016 Course Map. Please do note that the 2017 route may be liable to small changes and will be updated here in coming months.

On the course
There will be a mile marker at every mile for marathon runners and kilometre markers every km for the 10k runners. Please note mile markers may not be positioned exactly on the mile, but as near to it as is possible.
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’ spray painted on the road. These are indicated with a yellow smiley face icon on the course map.
Music, Cheer and Entertainment Points
There will be entertainment points along the course including a number of acts, bands and charity cheer points to help keep you motivated. These are marked on the course map with a music note icon.
Toilets are frequently positioned close to a drinks station, just before or after every drinks station. These will be at approximately Mile 2.5, 6, 8, 11, 13.5, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25 and at the finish.
In addition to a large team of professional doctors and medics, St John Ambulance will provide part of our medical support on the day. There will be multiple First Aid stations along the course, assisting runners who may need basic medical attention. There will be medical cover at every water station with specific medical tents along the course. There is also an Advanced Treatment Centre on the course, and at the finish.
There will be pacers available on Race Day powered by RunBrighton
who have been recruited locally; most of them affiliated to one of the various Brighton-based athletics clubs. They all have marathon experience and are ready to guide you to the finish. There will be 14 pace setters with two for every 15 minutes, starting from 3 hours to 4.5 hours.
