Here are all the pictures from yesterday’s Brighton Marathon.

More than 7,000 runners pounded the streets of the city as they ran for quick times and good causes.

It was the first Brighton Marathon since London Marathon Events took over organising the weekend in December.

The marathon started in Preston Park at 9.45am and runners headed up to Withdean before turning back down London Road towards the city.

The streets were lined with supporters, many of whom held encouraging signs aloft and cheered.

The route passed many of the city’s landmarks including St Peter’s Church, the Pavilion and the Palace Pier.

But the race was finally won by Marshall Smith from Ashford in Kent, who was five minutes ahead of the rest of the field.

It was the 22-year-old’s first ever marathon and he completed it in 2:24:07.

Helen Reid, from London, took the women’s title with a time of 2:55:11.
