Entries for the Brighton Marathon 10k are open again today.

The 10k is taking place on a new course on Sunday, April 2, before the Brighton Marathon.

New organisers London Marathon Events (LME) are accepting entries after taking over the event in December.

LME is honouring all places previously bought by individuals and charities to use in the 2023 BM10K.

Hugh Brasher, event director of LME, said: “The BM10K gives people a wonderful opportunity to be part of a fantastic day in Brighton on Sunday 2 April.

“It’s just over ten weeks until the event which is plenty of time to prepare for a 10K, even if it is your first one, and we will support everyone every step of the way from signing up to the finish line.”

Entries for the 10k cost £35.

There will be a new course, although exact details of this have not been announced yet.

Marathon entries are also open and cost £69.99.

LME took over the event in December after previous organisers Grounded Events went into administration.

It confirmed it would not be hiring previous directors Tom Naylor and Tim Hutchings to help run Brighton Marathon.

The pair came under fire for not paying race winners and companies involved in the race.

They also accepted race entries until November 7 despite filing a notice of hiring administrators on November 1 last year.
