Registration for public sales will close when the race sells-out. Only charity places will be available after this date. 

As per our T&C’s when you sign up, we are unable to offer refunds.

Notes about transfers. 

  1. Registrations for those as part of a group-registration cannot be transferred. 
  2. Transfers may only be completed into the same category – if the original registration was for a UKA reg. runner, the new registration must also be for a UKA reg runner. 
  3. If a participant transfers categories BEFORE attempting to transfer the registration to someone else the process cannot be completed. 
  4. The original registration fee is not refunded until the new participant accepts and completes the transfer process. Active.com processing fees and/or UKA (if applicable) are not refunded.  
  5. Once the recipient has accepted and completed the transfer, the original registrant will be cancelled and refunded. Refunds are processed within  5-7 days. If a transfer fee is applied, it will be deducted automatically from the refund. For example, if the original registrant paid £15 and the transfer fee is £3  he/ she will be refunded £12

 

All participants must be 17 years old or over on the day of the race. This age limit is set by England Athletics and is a condition of our race insurance. 

Yes, you can.  Although as you have an international address you will need to collect your race pack from the race village on morning of race.  Please allow enough time in the morning of race day to do this. Maderia Drive, Brighton BN2 1PS on Sunday 18th November 2018 between 07:30- 08:45am. 

It is your responsibility to keep your address updated if you move. Your race entry fee only covers one race pack, one timing chip and one postage. After 31st October the data will be processed so no further self edit changes can be permitted. Please contact us at info@thebrighton10k.com ASAP if you need update your address after this date. If we don’t have the correct address for posting your race pack you will need to collect a new race pack on the morning of the race and the cost for this is £5.00. Please make every effort to retrieve your race pack from your previous address to avoid this charge. 

To be guaranteed postal delivery you need to be entered by 31st October 2018. Anyone who entered after this date will need to collect their race pack on race day from the information tent, Maderia Drive, Brighton BN2 1PS on Sunday 19th November between 07:30 – 08:45am. 

If you entered before 31st October you will receive your race pack the week commencing 5h November. Please be aware not all packs arrive on the same day! If you haven’t received your pack by Monday 12th November please email us at info@the brighton10K.com

The roads are closed for the race. We have qualified security and stewards to assist with managing the traffic,  pedestrians and crowd control. 

The start will be separated into anticipated race finish times. Please be realistic and don’t put yourself at the front unless you are very fast! We want everyone to enjoy the race so please go to the timing area indicated. All runners are chip timed and this isn’t activated until you cross the line so you can still achieve your PB even if you start near the back. 

Parking is only allowed for blue badge holders on Madeira Drive. There are ample pay and display parking on Marine Parade and in the side streets to the north of the seafront. The further north you go the cheaper it becomes. Brighton Marina have requested that Brighton 10k runners do not park in the Marina carpark. The nearest train station in Brighton National Rail station. There are no anticipated engineering works on the day but please check before you travel! 

‘Afraid not! This is a fast, flat, (and fun!) road race – but no animals, wheels or under 17 year olds can participate.
