The Brighton Marathon Weekend is an exciting three-day running event in one of Britain’s most cosmopolitan cities, comprising the BM10k and the Brighton Marathon on the Sunday, the Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens Mini Mile Races on the Saturday and the Event Village, which hosted 150,000 people in 2017 on Brighton beach.
Each year the Brighton Marathon has attracted top-class distance runners to the event.
2017 was the first year where British-only athletes were invited to compete, and this will be repeated for the 2018 event on Sunday, April 15.
The first-place winner in the 2018 Brighton Marathon will win £2000, with prizes also allocated for the first eight men and women.
Time bonuses are on offer, starting at £250 for performances under 2:20 for men and 2:40 for women.
Another event to have become hugely popular is the BM10k. Taking place right before the marathon, the BM10k offers a very fast, flat route and all the atmosphere and course highlights of the marathon.
First place in the BM10k, for both men’s and women’s races, will win a prize of £1000 while breaking 28:45 (men’s) or 32:00 (women’s) will receive a time bonus of £1000.
General entries for the Brighton Marathon are now closed to the public but club runners are still able to secure a guaranteed entry into the Brighton Marathon.
BM10k entries are still on sale via the website.
More information about prize funds and how to enter both events as club and elite athletes, is available at: brightonmarathonweekend.co.uk/club-elite-athletes
