Firstly a big 'thank you' to our runners for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 2016, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019! and all those who supported them.
We have had runners in every Brighton marathon and are proud supporters of the event.
It's been a great success all round, for Leo House, Brighton Marathon and Brighton itself.
2020 will be Brighton Marathon's tenth year and these are exciting times for running in the oh-so-energised city of Brighton & Hove and in the UK generally.It will be quite some year!
The 2020 edition of the Brighton Marathon will be on the 19th April will be significantly bigger than either of the previous editions.
If you wish to run for us in the 2020 Brighton Marathon please contact us for more information.
We are asking people to raise at least £500 for us, and remember 98p in every pound goes directly to helping the children we look after.
If you have already entered the marathon and would still like to raise money for Leo House please do get in contact via our info email address or complete the form on the right with the subject 'marathon'..
The 2020 course will take in the best parts of the city centre and fabulous stretches of coastal road, including panoramic views that you’d expect where the glorious South Downs meet the English Channel.
Generally, the course is fast, held exclusively on roads and tarmac promenade.
The entire route will be free of traffic and where necessary, there will of course be barriers and/or tape separating runners from pedestrians, street furniture and other potential hazards.Of course there will some undulations in the route, principally in the first half of the race, while the second half will be very flat.
The Finish is in Madeira Drive, just east of the famous Brighton Pier. The last mile being along the seafront road alongside thousands of cheering spectators.
For more information about the day, and training please visit the Brighton Marathon webpage.
If you would like to sponsor any of our 2016 runners, please email us.Here are some of our previous runners and the reasons why they got involved.
One of our runners from 2011
Three intrepid runners
Dave, Ruth and Steve who also ran for us in 2012
"Jan is a keen golfer but hasn't done any serious running for many years. He practices his running by running between shots on the golf course! Amazingly he will be 74 by the time of the marathon. Over the past 14 years he has suffered from cancer and wants to make an effort to help other who are not well." Jan is another of our runners from 2011 and 2012
"I have thought about running a marathon for a long time but never previously done anything about it. When I found out about the fantastic work that Leo House do and saw that I could help by running the Brighton Marathon to raise money for them I decided its about time I stopped thinking about running it and actually doing some thing about it"
"the reason I requested to run for Leo House was because the money will help children and their parents who are local. The plight of having a sick child must be difficult for all concerned and I wanted to make some small contribution. Raising money for such a fantastic cause will be an inspiration over the last few miles on race day" Trevor is one of our runners from 2011
Alistair ran in in the inaugural year, 2010.
