General entries for this event are now closed, but the great news is that you can apply for one of our charity places and raise money to help us keep families close to their child in hospital. 

Ronald McDonald Houses enable families to maintain a degree of normal life while their child is undergoing medical treatment in specialist children's hospitals across the UK. A Ronald McDonald House provides a welcoming home, eases a family's stress and anxiety, and reduces their financial burden. Thanks to supporters like you, we provide a safe place to stay for thousands of families each year, so they can stay close to their sick child.

Voted the best UK marathon after the Virgin London Marathon at the 2016 Running Awards, Brighton Marathon is renowned for its buzzing atmosphere and roaring crowd support. The course winds through the city streets, finishing up on the spectacular Brighton seafront. Spectators will also enjoy this great marathon weekend celebrating with friends and family in the Beach Village whilst enjoying live screens, food, bars and deck chairs!
