Get set for Sunday
We hope you’re ready and raring to run on Sunday! With just four days until race day, now’s the time to get your race kit sorted, put your name on your running top, and think about all those last-minute preparations that will help you have a smooth and enjoyable race morning. Here’s a reminder of the essential info ahead of race day…
Allow plenty of time to get to the start
With 10,000 runners signed up this year, please allow plenty of time to get to the start on Madeira Drive. The start time is 8:57am for the Wheelchair Race and 9am for runners, however we recommend that you arrive no later than 8:15am, and to go to your start pen when you have dropped off baggage.
Please do remember that there are engineering works on the London to Brighton train line this week and over race weekend. Please consider how you will travel to and from the race to help you have an enjoyable race day.
Need the helpdesk?
If your race number hasn’t turned up, you’ll be able to collect a new one from the helpdesk. Located in the first marquee as you walk down Madeira Drive from the Pier, the helpdesk will be open between 2-4pm on Saturday, and from 7am on race morning. The team in the helpdesk will also be able to assist with any other queries you have – and will also have a box of spare safety pins!
Limited merchandise on sale
We’ll have a limited number of hoodies and T-shirts on sale on race day. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to re-order stock this year, but we’ll be bringing all the remaining 2022 stock to the race, available from the helpdesk. Please note that this is cash-only. If your size isn’t available, our 2023 range will be on sale very soon!
Read the race guide (if you haven’t already)
And finally, if you haven’t downloaded our race guide yet, please do give it a read. It contains all the essential information you’ll need for the morning to help you have an enjoyable race day.
We’ll see you bright and early on Sunday. We hope you have a great run!
