Brighton Maps 2014 Courses

Map of Brighton Marathon

The courses for the 2014 Brighton Marathon and 10k events have been released with a new, quicker route for the 26.2 mile distance. The event will take place on Sunday 6 April with the 10k distance making its debut at the UK's second largest marathon.

The crucial changes to the marathon come in miles five and 10. In mile five a new loop has been introduced at the northern end of The Level.This is to make up for the big hill in the Rottingdean leg at the easternmost end of the route, between miles nine and 10, which has been taken out.

It is expected that the change will make the course faster than ever. The 10k will start in Preston Park at 8.30am, 30 minutes before the marathon itself gets under way at 9.00am.

The fast and flat 10k runs through the town centre before heading out west towards Hove Lawns. The final three kilometres will follow the marathon route to the finish along the sea front in Madeira Drive.
