Take on the Brighton Marathon and support us

Is your aspiration to complete a marathon? Maybe you have run a number of marathons and you want to add Brighton to your roll of honour?


The Brighton Marathon is one of Europe’s favourite marathons and this year, you can take part on behalf of the University of Brighton. We have just 10 places available for University Alumni, students and staff – secure your place todayas only a few places remain. The marathon takes place on Sunday 19th April 2020.

In running the marathon as part of the University of Brighton team you will be supporting some of the universities great projects including supporting our Sports Scholar programme. The programme supports current students at the University of Brighton who alongside their studies also compete at a representative level of sport. Funding of the programme helps these students afford travel to competitions and training, purchase of specialist sports equipment and other expenses that can sometimes be an additional financial outlay when already on a student budget. As well as the financial support the scholarship students also receive other services such as strength and conditioning as well as lifestyle and mentor support. It ultimately enables some athletes to continue their academic studies without compromising their sporting goals.
