Brighton Marathon 2018

Join us

Brighton Marathon’s fast, flat course takes runners through the best of this historic south coast city, showing them some glorious views of the South Downs - which is why it’s already become a popular fixture in the running calendar.

How to enter

There are 2 different ways you can join Team Macmillan for the Brighton Marathon:

Secure free charity place!

You can apply for one of our charity places. Simply click on the 'Get a place' button and apply for a place. There is no registration fee, all we ask is for a minimum sponsorship pledge of £800 which we ask to be raised within a month after the event.

Get your own place

If you’ve already purchased your own place in the Brighton Marathon, we'd love for you to join Team Macmillan - simply click on the 'I have my own place' button. There's no minimum sponsorship pledge, we just ask that you raise as much as you can.

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join Team Macmillan, we’ll support you every step of the way with:

  • Our bumper fundraising pack, bursting with fundraising top tips.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Newsletters to keep you up to date with Macmillan and Brighton Marathon news and activities.
  • An invite to our pre-marathon pasta party.
  • A free post-race massage

And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!

Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.

Why be part of the green team?

We want to use this amazing event to make a difference. We know cancer can affect everything; your body, your relationships, your money, everything. But we are here to help people live life, no matter what. We give them the support they need to hold on to who they are and what’s important.

But we can’t do it without you. Join Team Macmillan for Brighton Marathon and we will treat you like the superhero you are from the moment you sign up through to when you cross the finish line. Life with cancer is still a life. Join Team Macmillan and help people live it.

Please make sure you have read our Terms and Conditions before signing up.

You must be 18 or over on the day of the event in order to run.

If you have any questions, you can get in touch by emailing us or calling 020 7840 7878.
