The Brighton Marathon comprises of a 26.2 mile route, starting on Sunday 9th April at 9.15am in Preston Park, Brighton. With the team going through an uncompromising 12 week training regime, on average running three times per week.

The event has recorded over 11,000 participants this year, with runners coming from a series of backgrounds – including elite athletes.

Tim Maakestad, Partner at Kreston Reeves and soon to be a marathon runner, commented: “ This is an extreme challenge for those who are not used to running and involves a great deal of commitment to a training regime that will get you across the finishing line. It will give the runners enormous pride in achieving this personal goal and in raising much needed funds for these very worthwhile causes”.
