Can't wait for this one!
Hah! Can't believe how popular the 2013 thread is already. Congratulations to all those who completed on Sunday. A great achievement and Brighton is a lovely place to run.
Got my deferral code emailed to me this morning, very prompt of the organisers. Haven't signed up yet and have until 15 June to decide one way or another
It was a shame that yesterday's 'grand stand' seating wasn't being used.
What's this about spectator areas/amenities for next year?
I've got an expo code too so I'll register in the next day or so. Hopefully I've managed to convince a few mates to do it as well.
BTW can anyone from Brighton recommend a good running club to join? I've seen there are a few out in the area. I think I may be addicted now.

You've promoted me slightly , I'm not really on the team, well not on the core/staff team, I'm a volunteer and was driving, delivering kit, putting up banners and generally joining in the organised panic as the day progressed on Saturday, and then reversing the whole proceedure on Sunday and Monday so that the course and the Metropole were cleared and everything back in storage.
Lots of volunteers are out on the course and don't know what's happening anywhere further than they can see, but the drivers work closely with event control so we tend to know what's going on in the wider picture. This is my 3rd year so I have a good knowledge of what goes on backstage (no I'm not tempted to run before you ask, 5k parkrun is my current limit, I used to do 1/2 maras 30 years ago but no more!) .
So, anything I say here is my own opinion, not that of BM </disclaimer> I've just been posting on here to do my best to help you runners out.
If possible next year, could you all try to drink more water, it was delivered out to the course from a 7 ton truck with a forklift, but we had to manhandle it back into the vans and then into storage. Thanks, please do your best to help
well still here in Brighton weather this morning was terrible rain lash down the sea was really rough glad we ran Sunday fortunately it blew over so went for a walk we started at the 26 mile mark an ended up at the turn around point on the road to hell my goodness it seemed along way
Must say we weren’t looking forward to walking back but as we had stopped in the cafe the lady behind the counter told us how to get out at that end of the road by going over 2 lock gates and we caught the bus back (note to self remember that for Brighton 2013)
will have to wait until Friday when i get paid before me or the wife can use are Exbo codes to enter
Started hi, thanks for the support.
Started my training this morning. Went for a run, or rather a run-walk where I was running 1 minute and walking 5. Was out for around half an hour doing this. Was really relaxing. Might have to up the amount of time running to push myself a little better.
SnowMaiden well done to you on a good start

I think Brighton and Hove Athletic club or Arena80 for general runners, also Phoenix but I think they are geared more towards serious/fast people, but I may be wrong as I'm not a member of any of them!
If you want a regular run there's parkrun at Hove park 9am every Saturday, it's free, open to any speed from 14 mins to walking pace. Register at parkrun.org.uk and turn up every or some weeks. There are members of all 3 clubs there so you can ask around to see which suits you.
