The Brighton Marathon Weekend is about more than just the Brighton Marathon, with the BM10k kicking off on Race Sunday 45 minutes before the Marathon.

Preston Park will be buzzing with participants for both events and thousands of spectators will see off our participants as they run one of the UK’s best 10k races. With a stunning backdrop of the sea in one of the country’s most vibrant cities, the race allows even more people the chance to experience the amazing atmosphere of Brighton Marathon Weekend!

At the Finish, 10k runners can enjoy the Event Village where they can meet their friends and family and enjoy food, drink and live footage of the ongoing races on Brighton Beach.

The course is fast and flat and was the second-fastest in 2014 for both male and female British athletes in the UK.
