Runners and spectators can make use of our Park and Ride service on Race Day, which will offer shuttle buses to the Start and from the Finish.

We thoroughly recommend using the park & ride service if travelling to the city on race morning, to avoid any potential queues or traffic.

However, there are also a number of NCP car parks accessible on race day, a full list of which can be found here.

Booking will open late 2017.


Brighton mainline station is only a 15 minute walk from the start, while London Road station is 10 minutes.
Services can be limited on Sundays for the earlier train services – please check
In 2017 Preston Park rail station was closed on Race Day due to capacity issues. We will provide an update on 2018 status as soon as we can. 

Buses / Coach

Bus services will be subject to diversion on Race Sunday, so please do continue to check the Brighton & Hove Bus Company website for the most up to date travel information and full timetables.


London Gatwick is the closest airport and is 30 minutes away by train (trains run direct from the airport to Brighton mainline station) or 35-40 minutes by car.
