Following the decision in March 2020 to postpone Brighton Marathon Weekend 2020, we have collaborated with major UK mass participation event organisers, our local authority, our safety advisors and our medical team to fully understand how our event could take place while meeting COVID-19 restrictions and the recently updated government guidance for events. 

Despite our best efforts to find a viable way forwards, we have together concluded that sadly, it is not feasible to stage our event as we had hoped and planned on September 18th-20th 2020.

Yet we are delighted to confirm that we are planning to stage the Brighton Marathon Weekend in a unique and revised format on Sunday 11 October 2020, on the roads in Brighton & Hove: Brighton Marathon Weekend | The Edit.

While we are unable to shut down parts of our city to make way for our 26.2-mile course under current guidelines, we are working towards creating a socially distanced, COVID-19 compliant event, which our 2020 charity participants will be invited to be a part of.
