The participant’s Event Village will once again provide a place for runners to purchase and sample sports nutrition, liaise with the organisers and meet the event’s charity partners organisers to find out more about their vital work in the local community.
For a closer look at the 2016 route, click the map below. Please note that we have made some small improvements and adjustments to both the half marathon and 10K routes this year. Only the latter part of the 2015 route is changing, mainly due to the extensive feedback we received last year from our runners and to requirements from Surrey County Council in the wake of the planned rebuild of Flanchford Bridge this summer.
This year, we will not be running through Littleton Manor Equestrian Centre or up Littleton Lane (aka BOSH Hill), instead runners will continue via Sandcross Lane, the very scenic (and downhill) Whitehall Lane, joining Clayhall Lane before proceeding onto Park Lane again towards the finish. This last section still involves a short sharp hill however although short and sharp, it’s fully surfaced and regarded by most to being a lot kinder than last year’s section.
You can read more about the route in our blog, including a review by Brighton Marathon pace runner Daren Elliot.
