Route information
Kick off your running calendar with this popular half marathon based in Brighton. With a closed road route that weaves past some of the city's famous landmarks, the course is ideal for all abilities, from seasoned runners to those looking to complete their first half marathon. This event is brought to you by local charity The Sussex Beacon.
Starting from Madeira Drive, you’ll turn right at the SeaLife Centre, heading towards Ovingdean and passing regal Royal and Lewes Crescent architecture on your left. Continuing on to Marine Drive and the bracing cliff tops, the race will head towards Roedean School, where a sharp turn on the road before Roedean Road will bring you back west towards Brighton, enjoying wonderful cliff top and panoramic city views.
Picking up the pace as you run past the iconic blue railings on Marine Parade, spot Brighton Palace Pier on your left. At Aquarium Roundabout the race heads north, past the grandeur of the Royal Pavilion towards the majesty of St Peter’s Church. Carrying on you’ll loop around The Level before you head south back down Grand Parade to the Old Steine before turning right onto Grand Junction Road.
At mile 7 you’ll hit The Grand Hotel Brighton, then the course heads towards Hove next, and you’ll be able to spot the West Pier on the horizon, plus the British Airways i360.
Once past the two piers, you will head into Hove along the Kings Road with the majestic cream regency architecture on your right and the sea on your left. At the bandstand, you’ll run round Bedford Square before carrying on along the seafront where you’ll run up Grand Avenue and back down to the Queen Victoria statue. Past the King Alfred Leisure Centre, you will run to Hove Lagoon before turning left onto the seafront. A great two mile run past the colourful beach huts of Hove will bring you back to the Peace Statue, where the race re-joins the road for the last dash to the finish on Madeira Drive.
