Join over 12,000 runners and take part in the Brighton Marathon to raise much needed funds for your local children's hospice. Starting at Preston Park, you’ll traverse the buzzing city centre, run along the scenic seafront, and finish triumphantly at the iconic Madeira Drive – right in front of cheering fans!

All Demelza places in the Brighton Marathon have been allocated. However, if you have your own place in the Brighton Marathon, we would be delighted if you were able to join #TeamDemelza and raise funds for your local children's hospice. Alternatively, you may know a placed runner who needs your help reaching their fundraising targets!
