Following our announcement that the Brighton Marathon Weekend cannot go ahead as planned in September 2020, we can now share your full options with you as a 2020 participant.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we have had to adapt and pivot our event plans accordingly over the past few months during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We value and need the support of our participants if we (and the events industry) are to come back stronger.

We hope that the options below are fair for all and moreover, that you can join us for our revised event, Brighton Marathon Weekend | The Edit, which we are planning on staging this October on Hove Lawns.

Please read these carefully before following the instructions to log your choice. You must log your choice by 10pm on 31st August 2020.
