Brighton Marathon: coronavirus update

The 2020 Brighton Marathon is now scheduled to take place on Sunday 20th September 2020.

We are so grateful to you all for your ongoing support, and your interest in joining the team. We will be with you every step of this Brighton Marathon and we promise to keep you updated. We also have information and advice for people living with diabetes relating to the coronavirus outbreak, which you may find useful.

If you cannot make the 2020 date and would be interested in joining us for the 2021 Brighton Marathon, please register your interest by sending us an email and we will be in touch as soon as the 2021 registration is open. 


The Brighton Marathon is one of the UK's favourite 26.2 milers. Being only an hour away from London by train, having a stunning backdrop of the sea, and taking place in one of the country's most vibrant cities, the race gets bigger and better every year.
