WHAT an amazing weekend.

The Brighton Marathon celebrated its tenth anniversary yesterday with another fantastic event this city can be proud of.

More than 17,500 runners took part in various races over the two days – with more than 150,000 spectators cheering them on.

And all the effort has helped raise about £6 million for charities and good causes in Brighton and beyond.

There have been some incredible human stories in the run-up to this year’s event.

Some have been heartbreaking – but all of them have been truly inspirational.

We heard from single mum Emma Knight, whose world was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

And we spoke to dad Sam Wilson, whose three-year-old daughter Ophelia has cerebral palsy.

Like so many countless others, they were running to raise vital funds for charities which do amazing work helping those in need.

We here at the Argus take our hats off to them.

This newspaper is full of admiration for each and every one of those people who gave up their Sunday to slog around a 26-mile course in order to help make the world a little bit better for those less fortunate than themselves.

Congratulations to the winners, some of who set course records this year.

But, as the saying goes, it’s not the winning, it’s the taking part that counts.

It was inspiring to see so many dedicated people taking part in this wonderful community event.

We look forward to supporting the Brighton Marathon for many more years to come.
