10 of the Best Marathons in the UK
I ran my first marathon at Brighton in 2010. It was the first year of the Brighton Marathon and I entered after missing out on a place in the London Marathon. I think that’s how a lot of runners’ journey begins – and entry into London and a rejection that spurs a Google search to find an alternative.
Back then, London was the only big marathon in the UK, and while it’s still the biggest, a lot of cities now host races with the same big race feel. So if that’s what you’re after, here are a few suggestions. These are either races that I’ve done, or that I’ve been recommended by several runners I know.

It’s billed as the flattest marathon in the UK, and other than a hill in Altricham Town Centre, there’s not much by the way of gradient. A route change for 2020 will see the race taking in the centre of Manchester for the first time, and might even take out that bit of a hill.
