The race results and information are available here:
A record start number of 2724 willing participants lined up for near-perfect conditions along the south coast on Brightons Madeira Drive for a quick trip to the Marina, no stopping for shopping, back past the pier to check out the tea and coffee on the Kings Lawns and then a short stride back to the Finish line ready for fish and chips and a well earnt drink.
This years winner was Ben Whitby from Windsor Slough and Eton who did the grand tour in 29:52 (only 33 seconds off last years fast time), and the womens winner was the pre-race favourite Agnieszka Ciolek in 33:30 16 seconds off last years course record.
A full report of the race is here on the Sussex AA website:
