The Brighton 10K starts in Madeira Drive (the road next to the sea front below Marine Parade), Brighton.
route heads out towards the Marina (East) for 1.5K before turning back on itself, going back past the start, and continuing
past the Palace and West piers. The race continues past the Peace Statue (aprox 5K) to the King Alfred
Leisure centre at 6.5K where it turns and comes back along the sea front to the finish, also
in Madeira drive.
The race starts (and finishes) in Madeira Drive Brighton, where there is limited
car parking available. Further car parking is available in the city centre car
parks. Car parking is not available at Brighton Marina this year.
The race starts around 25 mins walk from the main train station in Brighton (walk down Queens road to the sea front and turn left).
The Brooks Brighton 10k start will be at 10am sharp. All runners should be assembled by 9.50am behind the start line with the Brighton (Palace) Pier behind. The course goes east for the first 1.5 kilometres before returning pass the start line. At the start it is dangerous for slower runners to be near the front where they may impede the faster runners. You could cause an accident, so please be realistic with your expected finish time and start position.
Also please take care at the turn when the runners return westwards along Madeira Drive. Remember that although the race results will be based on your position at the end of the race you will also get your actual running time for the course from start line to finish line so if you are a slower runner please start in the appropriate place for your time.
The 10K Course
Kilometre markers will be prominently displayed along the route, which has been accurately measured by an Official Course Measurer and holds a Certificate of Course Accuracy (SEAA 00/103). Please be constantly aware that your safety is your own responsibility.
You must obey the instructions of the Police and Race Marshals at all times. They are in a far better position than you to know of any possible danger points.
Keep well to the left at all times unless otherwise instructed.
Beware of cyclists on the pavement in the cycle lane between the piers and the usual problem with Sunday morning strollers along the seafront. Some may have dogs and/or little children in tow!
No dogs will be allowed to take part in this race. This is a dangerous practice, liable to cause accidents and is forbidden under the regulations of the British Association of Road Races.
For your immediate finishing needs there will be a digital clock mounted on the gantry by the finish to record your time. With the use of the Computer timing we will be displaying the earlier results near the finish as soon as possible.
The finish is at the same point as the start. Unlike previous years there will be no separate finishing funnels for men and women. Please keep moving after crossing the line and you will be channelled into a funnel where your timing chip will be removed and your race finisher’s medal presented to you.
You should continue until you are clear of the funnel. You will be requested to keep moving to collect your drink and met up with family and friends. Please do not congregate or obstruct the finish area, nor distract the officials in the finish area.
