If you're on the lookout for a 2023 UK marathon, this seafront 26.2-miler – which also takes you through leafy, city-centre streets lined with supporters – should definitely be on your consideration list. Hugely popular ever since the first event back in 2010, here's everything you need to know about next year's Brighton Marathon… including details of the much-anticipated course change.

When is the Brighton Marathon 2023?

The next Brighton Marathon will take place on Sunday, April 2, 2023.

What time does the Brighton Marathon 2023 start?

The start time for the Brighton Marathon 2023 is 9.45am.

How much does the Brighton Marathon cost?

General entries to next year's Brighton Marathon are now closed. However, you can still enter the race via its partner, Let's Do This, where the entry fee is £82.50. There are also charity places still available, as well as travel packages, which can be booked through the Brighton Marathon's official partner, Marathon Tours & Travel.

What is the course for the Brighton Marathon next year?

The Brighton Marathon 2023 sees an exciting course change that will be much welcomed by runners. Next year, the race waves goodbye to Shoreham Port, which saw participants run past the power station from miles 20 to 23 – an area that offered little beauty or crowd support.

Race organisers have put changes in place that will see more miles along the flat, leafy roads of the city centre at the beginning of the race, before heading to the seafront, which will make for an easier start. Following a seafront stretch, miles 15 to 25 will then take place through the super-supportive community of Hove, before a Palace Pier finish.
