Milgo's unconfirmed time is 2:35:32.

12:00pm

Kenya's Milgo has beaten her previous personal best of 2:37:06 - but it doesn't appear to be anywhere near the course record of 2:28:50 which was set last year by fellow Kenian Eunice Kales.

11:58am

Kenya's dominance continues - Alice Milgo comes in as the winner of the women's race.

11:57am

11:56am

11:46am

So Kenya completed the 1-2-3. 

1st place: William Chebor

2nd place: Dominic Kangor

3rd place: Wilfred Murgor

11:45am

11:43am

WARNING: bit of a grim tweet coming up. But let it be a lesson to all you runners - always get the Vaseline out. (Other petroleum jellies are available)

11:41am

11:40am

Tomoyuki Morita has finished fourth in his first Brighton Marathon.

He's the first Japanese athlete to run the race.

11:39am

11:39am

11:36am

11:35am

It's a Kenya 1-2, Dominic Kangor coming in second. 

11:35am

11:33am

William Chebor's time is a course record. 

Still unconfirmed at the moment, but understood to be 2:09:25.

 

11:31am

11:27am

As soon as the time is confirmed we'll bring it to you.

11:27am

The time is yet to be confirmed, but it appears to be a sub two hour ten minute time which would mean a new course record.

11:26am

William Chebor has won the Brighton Marathon 2014.

11:25am

11:25am

We understand it's the course record holder Dominic Kangor who is nipping at his heels. 

Kangor ran the Brighton Marathon in 2:10:46 last year. 

11:24am

Chebor is the fastest man in the field with a marathon personal best of 2:08:21.

11:22am

Our reporters are at the finish line where there is no 3G signal - but Henry Holloway has been on the phone to say two Kenyans are out in front with William Chebor leading the race. 

We're expecting a thrilling finish.

In other marathon-related news - the Sheffield Half Marathon was cancelled today because of a water shortage. 

I'm sure the spectators in Brighton wouldn't mind lending the north some rain.

From beer to uncertainty says...

Add up every single penny raised for these great charitable causes and times the sum by ten...and it won't come close to the amount trousered by greedy politicians who mostly appear above the law.
Thousands of great people doing so much good. Only to be let down ten-fold by a bunch of expense-fiddling, freeloaders in Westminster. Would probably all need to do a marathon every month if you wanted to keep them in money for their second-house property businesses and related expenses.
Keep on running everyone...as MPs dismantle the NHS whilst claiming for their brunch and moat-maintenance expenses...

Mr chock says...

the clean up of the event has been amazing . i was looking along the seafront at 5 pm and a team of 5 Asian cleaners came along all stooping down to clean the litter , on speaking to the guy walking along behind he made it clear that if he was working with English crew it would have been a different approach needed ..mayb me wonder why no one thought to get petrol leaf blowers . maybe this is the GREEN cleaning approach to employ agency staff "who knows from where " but a team of leaf blower cleaners would have been a far faster ALL be it" noisey method
