Participant information

Everything you need to know about the BM10K

Start Line & Bag Drop

The Start Line for the BM10K is located at Hove Lawns, Kingsway, Brighton and Hove, Hove, BN3 2PE.

You must arrive at your allocated arrival time, which corresponds to your bib number and wave colour, and is based on your predicted finish time.

Red wave arrival time is 07:30 and start time is 08:45
Blue wave arrival time is 07:30 and start time is 08:47
Yellow wave arrival time is 07:45 and start time is 08:53
Green wave arrival time is 07:45 and start time is 08:53

You’re not able to move to an earlier wave but you can move to a later one. There’s no need to let us know, just join the later wave on the day.

You’ll be able to use the kitbag drop to keep your belongings safe before collecting from the same place once you cross the Finish Line at Hove Lawns. For the bag drop please ensure you attach the baggage label, which is included in your Event Pack, to your bag. Your drop-off point is determined by the ‘Baggage’ letter on your bib number. Look for the drop-off point that matches the colour and letter on your bib number.

Event Pack

Important: Event Packs are not available to collect on Event Day

Your Event Pack, containing your bib number, kitbag and your baggage label, should arrive in the post by Tuesday 2 April. If you haven’t received your pack by that date, please email us with your full name, postal address and date of birth.

If you do not receive a replacement pack before Event Day, you will need to collect it on Saturday 6 April – full details below.

International participants and undelivered packs

If you live outside of the UK, or are a UK resident whose Event Pack has not arrived, you’ll need to collect it from the Information Point at Preston Park between 10:00 and 18:00 on Saturday 6 April.

If you are unable to attend Preston Park on Saturday, you can arrange for someone else to collect your pack. Please ensure they have a copy of your ID or your confirmation email.
