Start line countdown

Let the countdown begin!


Will Combat Stress have a cheer point on the day?

Combat Stress will have a volunteer led Cheer Point at the Brighton Marathon.

Our wonderful long term supporter, Barry Coase, organises our cheer point and would welcome anyone joining him on the day. If you would like any cheer material for your friends and family, you can order for free from our Online Shop.

Where will the Cheer Point be located?

Our cheer point will be located just after mile 10 on marine drive, opposite the entrance to Roedean school on the side going back into Brighton.

Our location is marked by an orange star on the Route Map found in the assets section.

How do I collect my Race Pack?

When signing up and completing the console for the Brighton Marathon, all participants agreed to collect their Race or Rider Pack from the Beach Village on the Friday or Saturday before Race Day.

The Race and Rider Pack Collection marquee will be located in the Beach Village on Brighton beach, just east of Brighton Palace Pier. Head to the pier and walk along the prom towards the Marina. There will be limited parking in the immediate area, so we advise walking or taxi drop off.

What is in my Race Pack?

  • Your paper race number with attached timing chip (and safety pins to attach it to your top)
  • Reusable kit bag for the bag drop in the Beach Village
  • Official, technical race T-shirt

What do I need to bring to collect my Race Pack?

What do I do if I can't collect my race pack?

If due to unforeseen circumstances, you are unable to collect your Race or Rider Pack, you can arrange for a friend or family member to collect it for you. The person picking up your pack must present:
