The 2nd Largest UK Marathon!

More than 12,000 runners take part in this incredible marathon. You’ll start in Preston Park at 9.45am and make your way through the city, along the glorious seafront and finish at the iconic Madeira Drive in front of thousands of cheering spectators.

If you’ve missed out on a London Marathon place, Brighton is the next best thing (or possibly even better!) As you rack up the mileage, you will take in beautiful coastal views, run past beautiful buildings and have a huge crowd to cheer you on and help you tackle this amazing challenge.

Brighton offers one of the fastest marathon races in the UK and an amazing atmosphere, come join Team Action and join our mission to save and change children’s lives through medical research, developing treatments, vaccinations and cures. Run Brighton Marathon to help change children’s lives.

Run for children like Luka

Baby Luka was born very prematurely at just 30 weeks. He contracted the serious bowel disease NEC but thankfully he survived after emergency surgery and is now a healthy one-year-old. Action has funded a wide range of studies into premature birth and NEC, by running the London 10k for Action you'll be joining our fight to help stop babies being born too soon.
