Sometimes the best runs come on days you didn’t feel like running!

From the start line buzz in picturesque Preston Park to the finish line ecstasy along Brighton’s stunning seafront, the BM10k will carry you through the vibrant city streets and past the historic Royal Pavilion and Brighton Pier for a run you’ll never forget.

Whatever your reason, your support means local children and families who know they don’t have long together have the chance to live life to the full and say goodbye in the way that is right for them.

BM10k route map

With an stunning seaside backdrop, Brighton is home to one of the best 10ks in the UK. You can get an idea of the route by looking at the 2023 route map.

From Preston Park you’ll run Around The Level before hitting the seafront via the beautiful Royal Pavilion. Then it’s out past the iconic British Airways i360, before a nice flat run to the finish line on Madeira Drive.
