  • Hi Hampshire Runner I've run this race the last 2 years (not running it this year as I have the A100 2 weeks later but I will be volunteering at the finish line). It's a fantastic race and a great one for your first ultra. It's a very runnable cou…
  • Biko - the Travelodge at Preston Park is a popular choice (overlooks the start, although is a mile or so from the finish). Alternatively there are umpteen options along the seafront if you want to be closer to the finish and then it's a nice stretch…
  • Fergy, completely agree with what Millsy said. I recently ran a 50 miler (SDW50) which was my priority, then 8 days later ran Brighton marathon. Inbetween the two I just did 2 x easy 3-4 mile runs, lots of dog walking to keep my legs moving, but a…
  • Hi Stilts More than enough time, the race starts at 9.15am and the park is only a few minutes walk from the station. One thing to bear in mind though is that you have to pick your race number (or get someone else to pick it up in your behalf) on t…
  • Hi Meadower The course elevation here is in feet http://issuu.com/brightonmarathonofficial/docs/2015_brighton_marathon_course_map?e=10696722/11475126 This actually looks quite deceiving though - the only inclines (note not hills!) are in the first…
  • Meadower yes, 15 minutes walk to the start line so I figure it would be rude not to run it!  Any questions, ask away 
  • Amazing race report, and such a well deserved result  I love nothing more than a hard work pays off story, and you've demonstrated that will bells on - a real inspiration and I hope all your running dreams continue to come true 
  • In for the 6th time.
  • In for 2016 
  • My race report here http://sarahstravelsandraces.blogspot.co.uk/  I was undecided about running Brighton next year but this was my favourite Brighton marathon to date, so definitely a case of same time, same place next year!
  • Huge well done Amy, chuffed to bits that you got your sub 4:00, and even more so for digging deep when the going got tough. Enioy those well-earned post-race celebrations 
  • Gutted for you to get so close Tom....but I'm positive you'll knock that 12 seconds off (and a whole lot more!) next time you run a marathon. And don't be too hard on yourself as it's still an amazing time, even more so after having to really tough …
  • What an amazing day - my fifth Brighton marathon and my favourite yet  I only decided to run on Friday as I'd run a 50 mile ultra last weekend and wasn't focusing on a road marathon this year, but my legs felt ok so I figured I may as well use my …
  • I peaked at 30/30 but generally they were between 20-24/20-24. I wouldn't go as high as 30/30 again as I think the benefits beyond 24 miles are mainly psychological, but as it was the first time I'd done anything like this, I felt I needed the psych…
  • Hi Andrew I did the Sahara Race in the desert in Jordan last year (155 miles in 7 days, essentially broken down as 4 x consecutive days of marathons, 1 x 50 miles and 1 x 3 miles). Before I did it I'd only done a few marathons, 1 x 50 miler and …
  • Steyning Stinger yesterday, a VERY muddy 26 miles on the South Downs. Absolutely love this race 
  • Great attitude to have Amy re the sub 4:00 and you sound like you are in very capable hands with Steve  i am much better at endurance than speed so although our HM times are similar you would leave me standing at parkrun whereas I've done more ult…
  • I wasn't even aiming for sub 4:00, I was still a bit of a clueless runner then and had no idea about pacing and it was only in the last mile or so that I realised that if I put my foot down and really motored I'd get sub 4:00 - definitely NOT the wa…
  • Great report Amy   Has Steve readjusted your expected marathon time/training times because you are WAAAAAY on track for much faster than sub 4:00 based on Sunday's performance? My first sub 4:00 (sneaked under by 14 seconds!) came off the back of …
  • The Kingston Breakfast Race is a great run (my husband ran it 3x) as we used to live in Ealing. Regarding your sub 4:00, based on yesterday's HM time, I would say you are more than equipped for it. When I ran my first sub 4:00 (3:59:46 and yes I d…
  • I came away with a shiny new PB by over 4 minutes in 1:38:28 so absolutely over the moon  There was definitely something in the Brighton air yesterday for PBs - my husband was hoping to go sub 1:28 and came away with 1:24:00 so we were both a bit sh…
  • Fantastic day for a half marathon in Brighton today and got a shiny new PB in 1:38:28  Great running Philomena, I really enjoyed the half today - after the 'long course' episode 3 years ago they've got a slick operation going on now. They even see…
  • Thanks Steve, we're both much better at endurance than speed! 
  • Yes came away with a 4 minute PB in 1:38:28 so over the moon with that (don't really belong on your thread but was just checking in to say well done!  ) Good luck with the rest of your training, you're in a different league to me but am loving fol…
  • Amazing times Tom and Steve - I it was a fantastic day for it wasn't it?!   Question for Steve - what kind of time in a half translates to a sub 3:00 marathon? (Not for me I hasten to add but my husband who finished today in 1:24:00 - he was previ…
  • Great running and pacing Tony, wasn't it a fantastic day for it 
  • Amazing running Team Asics! Wasn't it a perfect day for it   I had one of those races where everything just came together perfectly and got a PB of over 4 minutes in 1:38:28. Absolutely over the moon with that as I'm meant to be concentrating on u…
  • Ant, I haven't raced a HM for a couple of years but the last one I did in 2013 I got a 1:42:42 PB and that was when I was training for my first 50 miler so I do think the longer stuff can compliment the shorter stuff and visa versa. After I ran my f…
  • For me: April - SDW50 May - TP100 July - Racing the Planet's 155 miles/7 days in Ecuador October - Downslink 38 mile ultra
  • Thanks for the welcome Amy - I am on 'wind watch' - embarrasingly my most visited website in the week before a race down here is http://www.windguru.cz/int/ which monitors the wind for you! My HM PB is 1:42:42 so I'm hoping to be there or thereabo…
