The Rubix VT Brighton Half Marathon returns on Sunday 25 February 2024. Now in it’s 34th year the UK Athletics-certified event features a stunning seafront course in one of the UK’s most vibrant cities.
The Brighton Half Marathon is delighted to welcome TV personality James Argent, actor Connor Swindells, comedian and TV presenter, Zoe Lyons and DS Chris Oliver from Channel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins who are all running in support of their chosen charities. Organisers are urging runners to sign up quickly to join them as places are selling fast.
In addition to general entry places, runners can also secure a place on the start line to support many charities including headline partner The Sussex Beacon, plus over 30 local and national charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support, Alzheimer’s Society, Taylor-Made Dreams, Grassroots Suicide Prevention, Say Aphasia and Rockinghorse.
The race is, once again, organised by E3 Sports Events Ltd, the official event partner of the Sussex Beacon who remain the main beneficiary of the event. The Sussex Beacon provides specialist support and care for people living with HIV. The event is the single biggest annual fundraiser for The Sussex Beacon. Brighton Half Marathon raises over £1 million for a number of charities across Sussex and the UK each year.
Over 10,000 runners are expected to flock to Brighton to enjoy the fast, flat 13.1mile seafront course. In 2024 the Rubix VT Brighton Half Marathon also features a wheelchair race, a 1-mile youth race and new this year, a charity relay race.
The main race starts at 9:30am on Madeira Drive, next to the iconic Palace Pier, before winding its way around some of Brighton’s most iconic sites including Brighton Marina, The Royal Pavilion, The Grand Hotel, the i360, The West Pier and the colourful Hove Beach Huts. The flat course is ideal for beginners and more seasoned runners chasing a personal best.
