Brighton Marathon – 17th April 2016

Trek and Run were supported during this event by; Salba Chia  & Scimitar Sports Part 1; by Dave Sherman Before we get started with our reviews, here’s a film I made about the event from a runner’s perspective… Following my first marathon back in 2012, once the pain had worn off I set myself a goal of running as many marathons as I could but, as there are so many marathons out there, I planned to avoid running the same marathon twice. This lasted for 4 years (and 17 marathons); however when I’d tackled Brighton in 2013 I’d had a dreadful experience due to serious…

Vitality Brighton Half Marathon – 28th Feb 2016

Trek and Run were supported during this event by; Salba Chia  & Helly Hansen Part 1: By Steve Kimberley It was that time of the year again. As the winter months were coming to an end, half-marathon season was starting up again and for a third time I would be running the Vitality Brighton half marathon. Since the first time that I ran it, Brighton has been my favourite half marathon course for a number of reasons. First of all, the course is just an ideal layout of gradients and…

The Brighton Marathon, 2015

The Brighton Marathon is now one of the top marathons in the UK to run. It attracts elite runners who race round in 2 hours 10 minutes, top club runners from across the UK & Europe and then there is the rest of us who run to pursue a dream or just to push ourselves to the goal of finishing a marathon. Like all big races Brighton has an Expo, where you have to go to collect your race number and kit bag. I find this a bit of a…

The Brighton Half Marathon 2015

by Dave Sherman and Steve Kimberly Photos by Dave Sherman and Sportcam Part 1, by Dave In February 2014 I completed the Brighton Half Marathon in 1h35m 06s and looking back it was one of the highlights of my year. The whole day had been an amazing experience and I’d enjoyed every moment of it and gained a new personal best, but I’d been gutted to have missed out on dipping under 1h35m by just 7 seconds. Of course this meant I needed to come back in 2015 and this…

The Brighton Half Marathon 2014

By Laura Kimberley The Brighton Half Marathon totally filled me with dread for a full month leading up to it. I haven’t really taken part in any events since Survival of the Fittest in London last November so I was worried about the distance and whether or not I would be up to it. To top that off the weather in the days before the event was awful. The news kept reporting more and more storms and on the Friday night a video was posted on You Tube showing Brighton…

The Brighton Half Marathon 2014

During the week leading up to the Brighton Half Marathon Southern England suffered what the papers described as “the worst winter storms in living memory” including 90mph gale force winds and huge floods.  Although the worst floods happened in the South-West of England, the winds were felt all over and as you can imagine I was concerned just how tough this event was going to be leading up to race day, not to mention my own personal fears knowing parts of the route mirrored the Brighton Marathon – an event I’d fell apart in during the final…

Running the Brighton Marathon, by Kev Betts

Running a marathon – what goes on? Is it worth it? Well read on… So, what’s a marathon like to run? What goes through your mind and how does your body react throughout a marathon? I thought this week I’d give a run down of what goes through MY mind during a marathon and how the Brighton marathon affected me this year. I thought it’d be an ideal opportunity for those running London this weekend – especially if you’re doing it for the first time. Hopefully it’ll give an insight…

Brighton Half Marathon 2013

by Kev Betts The Brighton Half Marathon has come a long way since the inaugural race some 23 years ago. Back then, 200 runners turned up in a car park to race over 13.1 miles. This year, over 10,000 people entered one of the country’s leading races over the distance. There is no doubt that over the past couple of years, the timing of the event has fallen perfectly in line with the training diaries of spring marathon wannabes – the Brighton Marathon in particular. There is no doubt the…
