Southend Pier Marathon

This marathon will return in OCT 2025


Date 15th October 2023.

Entries  have opened and the event is now full please email us to go on the waiting list.

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 Multi-storey Car Park marathon, we believe this is another world’s first; a full marathon over the sea on the longest pier in the world.
