A beautiful seafront course, amazing crowd support and one of the first half marathons on the running calendar. The beach, which is a pebble beach instead of sand. Great architecture along the course.
Starting on Madeira Drive, which is situated on the seafront between Brighton Pier and Brighton Marina, the race heads north past the grandeur of the Royal Pavilion towards the majesty of St Peter’s Church. Turning at Gloucester Place, you head south back down Grand Parade to the Old Steine before turning left onto Marine Parade.
The race then heads out on the road towards Ovingdean, past the regal Royal and Lewes Crescent architecture. Continuing on Marine Drive and the bracing cliff tops, the race will head towards the Blind Veterans UK centre, where a sharp turn on the road before the Greenways Roundabout will bring you back west towards Brighton, enjoying wonderful cliff top and panoramic city views. Picking up pace as you run past the iconic blue railings on Marine Parade, you will run past Brighton Pier and the West Pier on the horizon (if it’s a nice day you may even see Worthing Pier in the distance!).
Once past our 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. Past the King Alfred Leisure Centre, you will run right to Hove Lagoon before turning left onto the seafront. A great 2 mile run past the colourful beach huts of Hove will bring you back to the Peace Statue, where the race rejoins the road for the last dash past cheering crowds to the finish on Madeira Drive.
