Entries going fast for BM10k

Brighton Marathon

Entries are flying off the shelves for the inaugural Brighton Marathon 10k which takes place on Sunday 6 April.

With registration opening at 9am on Wednesday, by the end of day one 500 places had already been snapped up, representing a quarter of all the places available for this new event.

The BM10k starts at 08.30 in Preston Park, 30 minutes before the Brighton Marathon and follows a flat, fast city centre route with the final three kilometres along the sea-front.

The course has been specifically designed to produce fast times and the elite race and prize money is open only to UK athletes.

The Brighton Marathon Weekend begins on Friday 4 April with the two-day action packed Exhibition in the Brighton Centre.

Saturday sees the ICONIQ Shlurp! Mini Mile Races in their new slot in Preston Park (11.00am start) and the weekend culminates on Sunday with the Marathon.

Entries for the 10km went live on Wednesday 15 January and 2000 places are on offer. 

Each runner will receive a medal, T-shirt, goody bag and an experience to remember.

 Race packs will be collected at the Brighton Marathon Exhibition on Friday 4 or Saturday 5 April.

The fifth Brighton Marathon, an IAAF Bronze Label event, takes place Sunday 6 April 2014.
