THOUSANDS of people took to the streets of the city for the return of the Brighton Marathon.

Spectators lined the streets, cheering and waving banners, as runners from across the country and world made their way across Brighton and Hove for the 26.2 mile race.

Some even took to fancy dress to complete the course, dressing up as gingerbread man, pandas and even emoji.

Here are a collection of some of the best photos from the day.
