Southend Pier Marathon
Due to ongoing pandemic and the ever changing situation we are still unable to host this event or give a date when we can, we are however committed to bringing this event back as soon as we can and are working with Southend Council to bring back.
Southend Pier is the town’s historical icon as well as being the longest pleasure Pier in the world. It stretches for 1.34 miles, putting Southend on the map as well as into the record books.
Since it was built in 1830 the Pier has seen both good and troubled times. With its many changes it has evolved to meet the trends of the passing decades of the 20th and 21st centuries.
It is a true survivor, having lived through fires, boat crashes, two world wars and economic decline as well as braving the elements of Mother Nature in beating off the effects of the weather and the waves.
Just like The Multistorey Marathon being the first in the Uk if not the world we believe this is a worlds first as well, a full marathon over the sea on the longest pier in the world.
