The races are open to 7 - 17 year olds giving youngsters a fantastic opportunity to capture the atmosphere of a mass participation race at the Brighton Marathon Weekend. All finishers will receive a Medal and a Kit Bag after they cross the line and all winners will be presented with prizes in front of the crowds! 


Participants can also help to make a difference by raising money for Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens, title partner of the event.


Not just about the races, friends & family can also enjoy a fantastic day out with lots of activities in the Event Village, live footage on the big screen, delicious food from Brighton's StreetDiner and a huge atmosphere!


Tell your friends and family; come and be a part of the biggest sporting event in the city of Brighton!  


Entries will open in early 2017.


Upon entering you were able to select which age category and time your child will take part in.


Please note:

  • We have worked the categories out by the age a child will be on the day of the races, not school year.
  • There are races for 7-10 year olds in the morning and in the afternoon - please choose just one race.
  • Once you have selected a race, there will not be an opportunity to change times at a later date due to capacity restrictions.


NB: race times may be subject to slight changes on the day
