Brighton Half Marathon

Take in the salty air and breathtaking sea views for the Brighton Half Marathon. Turn every step into support for the NHS by using your place in the race to raise funds for Sussex Community NHS Charity.

The event takes in Brighton in all its beauty: you’ll run past Brighton Pavilion Pier, Hove’s colourful beach huts, the Royal Pavilion, and the British Airways i360. You’re also promised stunning sea views in 95% of the course!

The race is usually one of the first major half marathons in the running calendar and one of the most popular races in the UK. It is also renowned for its relatively flat course - so sign up today and be a step closer to achieving that personal best!
