Participant information

Everything you need to the know about the Brighton Miles

Event Day

The event be returning in 2024, taking place on Saturday 6 April in Preston Park!

Age Categories

Unlike in previous years, in 2024 the Brighton Miles will be open to everyone and not just children and young people!

Age-specific waves still remain for any children and young people wanting to take part independently with their peers, but open age waves have been added, an adult-only mile has been introduced, and so much more!

There's now a way for everyone to feel welcome at Brighton Miles and to take on a mile that suits them.

Finish experience

We want our Brighton Miles participants to enjoy the experience of taking part in a mass participation event. There will be spectator support around the course, and as they cross the Finish Line, they will receive a Brighton Miles medal.

After the Finish Line, we have a repatriation zone where any children and young people taking part without an adult guardian will be taken to by staff members. Here, a parent or guardian with a corresponding identifier to the participant's bib number will collect them.

Your child's security

As a responsible adult for a child participant, you remain responsible for their whereabouts and behaviour at all times. We will, however, ensure that marshals and stewards who come in direct contact with the children are DBS checked.

The course is also fully enclosed and marshalled, and parents are able to see the entire course from inside the Brighton Miles village.

We will have a lost person notification point, which will be at the Information Point within the Brighton Miles Village. Please report to this area if you are a lost child or if you have lost a child.


You can find out about all pay and display and NCP parking in the city here.

Do bear in mind that there will be many other parents trying to park on the day so using public car parks close by or taking public transport may be advisable.
