Brighton Marathon Weekend will return for 2024 on the 6 and 7 April! The weekend is made up of the Brighton Miles event on Saturday 6 April and the BM10K and Brighton Marathon on Sunday 7 April.

Brighton marathon is the UK's third largest marathon and, not to mention, the most picturesque. The flat course makes it perfect for runners looking for a quicker race. The 26.2 mile course takes in Brighton's most iconic sights and includes a stunning seafront finish.

We have shifts available for you to volunteer across both days and you would be joining a team of 1,200 volunteers to provide amazing support in roles including start marshals, course marshals, medal distribution, baggage collection and wayfinding.

You can sign up to view and apply for available shifts on this website.
