Brighton Marathon Weekend has introduced a new Event Village on Brighton beach for the race in April.

The Event Village will be open for the entire weekend (7-9 April) and situated on Madeira Drive, where more than 100,000 people are expected to visit.

“Moving the Brighton Marathon Weekend Exhibition to become part of The Event Village on the beach at Madeira Drive creates the perfect place to come and be inspired before your race and to celebrate with friends and family afterwards,” said Tom Naylor, managing director of Grounded Events.

This will be the first time that Brighton Marathon Weekend have created a three-say village for its participants and their supports in one central location.

“The whole weekend will be a hive of activity for our participants and their supporters. We can’t wait to welcome them to the 2017 Brighton Marathon Weekend,” Naylor added.
