Time is running out for people thinking of taking part in next year’s Brighton Marathon.

Entries for the event on April 6 close at midnight tomorrow and organisers are urging people to sign up now to avoid disappointment.

A record 9,110 runners took part in this year’s race, making it the second largest marathon in the UK and the 12th largest in Europe.

The marathon regularly attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the city and has raised millions for charities.

Race director Tim Hutchings said: “We’re delighted with the way entries have been coming in for the 2014 Brighton Marathon in recent weeks.

“Other new events and tough economic times make conditions challenging even for us, but the sport of running, and training for a marathon, is a healthy, empowering pursuit that also gives one a great sense of achievement.

“We know we give our entrants in Brighton a fabulous weekend experience, and the city’s embracing of the runners makes the event very special and helps to give it a world-class stamp.

“Finally, we are always excited by the way literally hundreds of charities buy in to the Brighton Marathon and their involvement generates millions and millions for good causes.”
