Apparently, I have just seen this while googling for Brighton 10k results.  The first Brighton Marathon marathon is going to take place on April 19th 2009.  That should make up for a lot of disapointed people not getting into London and great place for a marathon as well!

Check out the link and register for yourself!

I don't know the area

Not hilly at all pretty flat in most areas.

Depends where you want to run JB .The sea front  area is flat.The downs and area to east is fairly undulating /hilly.

I will apply for London 2009 but if I get it will defer in favour of this

The Brighton half is quality and a marathon there would be awesome !!!!

Anyone got a 73-week marathon training schedule?

Sounds good to me another trip down from the midlands to the South coast.

3:30 or bust. Do you not think that is a little unfair taking a place of someone who wants to do the FLM. You are only supposed to defer a place if you are injured not just because you fancy doing another race.

but that's the way the FLM is davidt - get your place guaranteed and then see how things pan out - the FLM have made the rod for their own back I'm afraid by making entry difficult. anyway - that's off topic....

interesting development - have expressed an interest - be interesting to see what course they plan....

YES! I live in Brighton!

I think this is going to be a very popular event for those that don't get into FLM as it is around the same time. I have done the half marathon there and its a great event and again very popular.

Lets make Brighton the new London!  More chance of getting in, not as much queing and hassle!
