The below itinerary covers the full weekend. We offer 1, 2 or 3 night hotel stays. Stay Friday to Monday, Friday, Saturday or just 1 night on the Saturday or Sunday.
Friday 31st March 2023 : Optional early arrival day and race pack collection
Each of our hotels are available to be booked from today if you wish to make your Brighton Marathon weekend last a little bit longer. Come and visit our Expo stand at the Brighton Marathon Beach Expo village.
Saturday 1st April 2023 : Arrival and race pack collection
Make your way to Brighton and on arrival check in to your chosen hotel. Usually hotel rooms are ready after 3pm; if you arrive earlier please be prepared to leave your luggage with the hotel concierge and head off to the Marathon Expo to collect your race documents. Race documents must be collected from the Brighton Marathon Beach Village on the beach at Madeira Drive, either on Friday 31st March or Saturday 1st April 2023.
The Beach Village is a 3-day event in its own right, taking place across the entire weekend. It will open on the Friday, comprising race pack collection, retail, massage and food & drink as well as the Charity Village and big screen. The Expo has plenty to see and do, so allow plenty of time to collect your race documents, shop from the many exhibitors, listen to the experts on stage and enjoy the pre-race day vibe.
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.
Collection will be available at the below times:
Friday 31st March 2023: 11am – 7pm
Saturday 1st April 2023: 10am – 6pm
When you arrive, queuing lanes will be clearly marked and you should choose the lane that is relevant to your event. Once inside the marquee choose the lane according to your predicted finish time, now you have completed your training.
The rest of the day you can relax and prepare for race. If you have any questions, come and meet with one of the Destination Sport Experiences Team at the Beach Village.
This also the day of the mini mile races.
Sunday 2nd April 2023 : RACE DAY - 10k, BM Ride and Marathon
This is the day you have trained so hard for! After an early breakfast please get ready to leave the hotel for the 10k, the BM ride or the 2023 Brighton Marathon.
Celebrate with friends and family in the huge Beach Village complete with shopping, food, drink and big screens. On the Sunday (Race Day), the Beach Village will become a hive of activity and celebration as runners reunite with friends and family and enjoy the live footage on big screens, the Charity Village, food, bars and an atmosphere like no other at a running event.
Family and friends can organsie their days in their own time and pace to support and spectate along the race route. The Destination Sport Experiences team will be happy to advise. After the race make your way back to the hotel, freshen up, celebrate…you deserve it!
