I have just heard!
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!
Good news, have registered my interest too. Does anyone know anything about the organisers?
Is it preetty hilly round there being on the Sussex Downs?
I don't know the area
Hi, I have done a bit of digging and found out that it something to do with ex athlete Tim Hutchings who works at London Marathon and Active Europe I believe?
charliecub - thanks for that info, it sounds like he should know what he's doing.
Hippo - it didn't take you long to find this thread!
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 !!!!
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.
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!
I can't stop thinking about Ditchling Beacon though........................ They wouldn't... would they?!?!?!?!?
