For the first time, we will not be changing the Brighton Marathon course. 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. The course is available to view in Issuu below or as a PDF here.
Fluids and Fuel on course
New for 2015, will be the introduction of cups to serve both water and Gatorade. These have been tried and tested extensively; there will be just enough fluid (175-200ml) in each cup to rejuvenate but not enough to spill. The move to cups this year will dramatically improve our recycling efforts as well as decreasing fluid wastage; in previous years we have seen up to 50% of water and 75% of Gatorade wasted through the use of pouches and bottles. The use of cups has also meant we have been able to increase the frequency of the drink and fuel stations across the course, providing more opportunity for you to refuel.
