Brighton Marathon 2023

Sunday 2 April 2023

Run the Brighton Marathon in aid of Pilgrims on Sunday 2 April 2023!

Fancy a marathon with a side of sea air instead of the usual city heat?

Step up this Spring and join more than 8,000 fellow runners to experience the unforgettable atmosphere of the buzzing seaside city of Brighton & Hove on Sunday 2 April 2023 and raise much-needed funds for local hospice care.

You'll enjoy a brand new 26.2-mile route through the city on closed roads, as friends, family, and the local community line the pavements to cheer you on.

Apply to run in 2023

Just 2 charity places remaining!

Right now, you can apply for one of Pilgrims Hospices guaranteed charity places in the Brighton Marathon 2023. These places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis for a registration fee of £20 and a pledge to raise at least £500 sponsorship.

Already have a place in Brighton Marathon?

If you have received your own place for Brighton Marathon 2023 and would like to raise much-needed funds for hospice care in east Kent, we would love to hear from you!

By choosing to run in support of Pilgrims Hospices, you will be helping us to be there for thousands of people who are living with an incurable illness in east Kent. Every £25 raised enables Pilgrims to provide another hour of specialist end-of-life care, bringing comfort, alleviating pain and enabling life to be lived well.
