The Brighton 10K route

The fast, flat course is ideal for runners of all levels and is held on traffic free roads.


Whilst the front of the race may cover the 10k course in under 30 minutes (course record under 29 minutes), there are plenty of people finishing after 60, 70 or 80 minutes - there will be no judgement of your time, just admiration for you having done it.

For all those in between, the speed at the front provides an opportunity for everyone to get a good time - 36 min. runners dragged to sub 35 min, 46 min. runners to sub 45 mins and so on down the line of exhausted but happy athletes.

The start (and finish) line is located on Madeira Drive, approximately 500m East of the Palace Pier. The race heads west along Madeira Drive and the A259 as far as the King Alfred in Hove (3.5k). Here the course turns left down to Kings Esplanade and then onto the Prom as far as the Peace Statue (just after 5k). Here the route rejoins the A259 back to the Aquarium and onto Madeira Drive, passing the start/finish (7k) to reach a 180 degree turn at Black Rock and a 1500m sprint back to the finish.

The start will be graded with the fastest athletes at the front - please be aware that you will get a time based on crossing the start line (as well as a "gun" time), there is no need to worry about having to be near the front, as being surrounded by runners of a similar standard will actually help everybody to have a (fairly) clear and safe run.

From the organizer

Organizer's website

The Brighton 10k is one of the South East's longest running 10k road race and the oldest 10k in Brighton and Hove. Established by Brighton and Hove's Athletics Club in 1984. Olympic athlete, Chris Carter, set up the race to promote running and fitness, and to raise funds for the club and local charities. The race raises money for Brighton & Hove Athletics and other local groups supporting sport in the city.

We hope that you can join us this year!

What is the Brighton 10k about?

The Brighton 10k was established in the 1980's by members of Brighton & Hove Athletic Club with several objectives, which remain our target today.
* To provide a fast, competitive race for athletes in Sussex + the South East. Happily the opportunity for a fast time now also draws in entries from further afield.
* To provide an entry point for less experienced runners to make the step up to a relatively large road race, whether that step is testing your Parkrun progress, part of a progression to half/full marathons or just to prove to yourself (or others) that you can do it.
* To promote the sport and the club.
