Brighton Marathon

Looking for a fast or flat course? Then the Brighton Marathon is for you.

We answer your questions

How do I apply for my own place?

Public entry to the 2014 Brighton Marathon is now full. If you secured your own place then you can join Team Macmillan then we’d love for you to join our team - just sign up on this page.

How do I apply for a Macmillan Guaranteed Place?

Macmillan have a limited number of Guaranteed Places available in the Brighton Marathon. To secure a place we ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £800 in sponsorship. There is no registration fee to pay.

How much do I have to raise?

If you are running on one of our guaranteed charity places then you will have a minimum sponsorship amount of £800 to raise. This will be due in one month after the event (06 May 2014).

If you are successful in securing your own place then we don't ask for a minimum sponsorship target, we just ask you to raise as much as possible. We will provide you with the same level of care and support that our guaranteed place runners receive.


What can I expect from Team Macmillan?

When you join Team Macmillan, we'll provide you with:

  • a full fundraising and training pack
  • a sponsorship form
  • your free Team Macmillan running vest or T-shirt
  • regular newsletters, keeping you up to date with Team Macmillan news
  • the loudest and most supportive cheers from renowned cheer-points on race day
  • Most importantly, we'll provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising. Because you'll know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people affected by cancer in the UK now and far into the future.


Will Macmillan help me with my training?

Of course. When you sign up to run the Brighton Marathon with Team Macmillan we’ll provide you with a comprehensive training pack and regular newsletters full of top training tips, including advice from our Team Macmillan patrons. We will also advise you of other useful sources of information to help you prepare for the big day.

What happens if I get injured?

If you or any of your team mates get injured while training we recommend you contact your GP, physio or specialist sports injury clinic. They will be able to advise you if you are fit enough to run.

If you do need to withdraw you will need to inform the Brighton Marathon race organisers as soon as possible. Please also let Macmillan know so that we can advise you about transferring your place.


When will I get my race number?

Your official race number and timing chip will be sent to you directly from the Brighton Marathon race organisers approximately two weeks before the event.

If you have any queries please contact them directly by either calling 08453 100 088 or emailing
