London 2 Brighton
The Guinea pigs on the 2016 test run
The London 2 Brighton Trail Marathon.
As most of you are aware we have been trying to resurrect this race for quite a time and are very proud to announce we will be back on the 2nd September 2018.( Permits applied for).
We are very passionate about this race as Jay and Danny did the L2B extreme trail race and Chris ran the last ever road race. We believe the L2B has a long history in British running scene and deserves to be continued as a race. If you would like to know more please read our article in issue 4 of Ultra running magazine.
The Race will start at Blackheath London ( the start of the London Marathon) and follows roads, footpaths and bridleways through Kent, Surrey and Sussex. You will cross both the North Downs Way and South Downs way and finish in Madiera Drive, Brighton the historic finish of the London 2 Brighton Road race and dip your feet in the sea.
This is a self navigating race but we do mark the course with L2B stickers on Footpath signs, it is a tough route with only 5 aid stations so you must be a competent trail runner with navigational skills and be able to be self sufficient between aid stations they are roughly 9-10 miles apart..
