There are a number of ways to get about during the Brighton Marathon Weekend. We have put together some information below, to help you get around from the moment you arrive to the moment you finish.


There is a train station at Preston Park, a few minutes walk from the Mini Mile Races. Many routes do stop here but check with National Rail before you book your travel.
Brighton mainline station is only a 20 minute walk from Preston Park.
Trains run regularly from London Victoria to Brighton mainline station.


If you are staying in or near Brighton taxis can drop you close by to the start area on event day. T

Streamline Taxis - 01273 747474 / 01273 202020

Brighton & Hove City Cabs - 01273 205205

You can find a list of further public transport available and full information via the Brighton & Hove City Council web site



Buses run in and around the city, which might be easier than trying to find parking near by.

The 5A and 5 buses stop alongside the park and run in and from the city centre.

Please check Brighton & Hove Buses web site to find out full information about which services are running and when.


There is some free parking in the roads directly adjacent to the park, and in residential roads nearby.
You can also find out about all pay and display and NCP parking in the city HERE
Do bear in mind that there will be many other parents trying to park on the day so using public car parks close by or taking public transport may be advisable.

By Bike

If you are cycling to the event on Race Day, there are bike stands by the cafĂ© in the centre of Preston Park where you will be able to lock your bike up. There is also a bike storage system at Brighton Station called (n+1) which has storage for over 500 cycles. You will need a key card from Southern Railway to use this – more info is available here: http://www.nplusone.bike/cycles#storage
