General Information: The Marathon course runs through wooded and grassland areas of the Sussex Downs. There are no water crossings. The seven artificial obstacles are constructed on fairly flat ground all within easy walking distance of the main complex and stable area. Exercising is within the confines of the Park. Location: Stanmer Park is on the A27 Lewes road approximately 2 miles northeast of Brighton, next door to Sussex University. Post code BN1 9SE. When approaching from the M25/London travelling towards Lewes, Eastbourne and Hastings, the signs for the Universities should be followed. Should this be missed, it is possible to take the slip road at Sussex University, and return down the A27 exiting at Southern Water before turning right into the Park. From Eastbourne/Lewes direction follow along the A27, the exit is at Southern Water just after the overpass at Sussex University. There is a local bus and train service (Stanmer/University station is just across the main A27 next to Southern Water) to Brighton, Lewes and Eastbourne.

Take in the Regency architecture that is on a par with the best in the country; visit the exotic Pavilion; enjoy the famous nightlife and the enormous range of visual and performing arts including Brighton International Arts Festival, the largest in England.
