I have run two marathons, Brighton and Edinburgh. Comparing the two, Brighton was the better one. It had a much better expo, pre-race drinks/gels, and also the finish was an event to itself. I felt Edinburgh's lack of post-race atmosphere keenly, and was not sure of the direction of the baggage or toliets at the end, although I did find them fairly quickly.
If you ask me what was the better event, I would say Brighton without hesitation. But Edinburgh was well organised (despite its ridiculous stance in printing the results initially). I would pay more for Brighton, but the things that made it better are an added on and not essential.
