Brighton Marathon 2020

Join us

Brighton Marathon’s fast 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.

The organisers of the Brighton Marathon have confirmed the event will be postponed from April 2020 to 20th September 2020. We hope our runners will be able to join us on this new date, and will be in contact with all our charity place participants over the coming week with guidance on next steps.

How to enter

Secure a charity place!

We would love to have you on #TeamMacmillan for this year's Brighton Marathon. There is a £30 registration fee for our charity places and we ask that you pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £800 (excluding gift aid).

To apply for a charity place, simply click the ‘Get a place’ button and complete our online application form.

Use your own place

If you have bought a place in the race, we'd love to have you on our team - simply click the ‘I have my own place’ button. There’s no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

Whichever way you decide 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.

The minimum age for this event is 18 years old. For full terms and conditions click here.
