Brighton Marathon

Sunday 7 April 2024

Join Team Big C for the incredible Brighton Marathon in 2024!

FREE place (if you commit to raising a minimum of £300 sponsorship)




Sunday 7 April 2024


Brighton, Sussex

Held in the iconic seaside city, the Brighton Marathon is like no other! The course takes you through the vibrant city centre, before heading along the glorious Brighton seafront to the finish line.

We have a limited number of FREE charity places up for grabs. If you’re lucky to get one of our limited spaces, we’re asking you to pledge to raise a minimum of £300. This will help us to continue supporting local people affected by cancer.

What you need to take part

If you fancy taking on this challenge, all you need to do is email us expressing your interest, and commit to raising £300 for Big C.

Running a marathon is an incredible achievement. The earlier you start your training, the better, and there are plenty of guides around to help you prepare.

Once your place is confirmed, our fundraising team can advise you on training plans and how best to get ready for the challenge.
