Proposed Route Map
If you’re used to running road marathons, you might be interested to know that Aid Stations are quite different for a trail marathon as you’ll be out on the course for longer and will need more sustenance to keep you going. They are also a chance to stop and take a break!
There will be six Aid Stations on the Brighton Trail Marathon route, plus one at the finish, which will all be fully stocked with water, energy drinks, energy gels, energy bars, and a variety of fruit as well as sweet and savoury snacks.
We will have provision for everyone’s requirements including vegan, vegetarian and gluten free. (We’ll be announcing our nutrition partners soon, so plenty of time to experiment with what works for you).
Although you won’t want to hang about, our Aid Stations will be an opportunity for you to take a breather, take on board some nutrition and fill your hydration system before setting off for the next section.
Most of our Aid Stations will also have beautiful backdrops where you can take a few deep breaths, enjoy the view and take a photo or two!
And of course, there will be medical support at each station to provide any necessary support.
Locations of each Aid Station will be announced in coming weeks.
Signage and way-finding
The marathon course will be fully way-marked with GPX files available for download.
Marshalls and first aid will also be located across the route, providing friendly support to help you complete your marathon.
Toilets will be positioned around the marathon course. More info will be available soon with exact locations.
Cheer points and music
There will be several places on the course where you can expect to feel the love! Spectators will be able to access some points on the route, and where they can’t, our team will be providing the motivation. More info will be provided soon.
