Brighton Marathon 2013

Britain's second biggest marathon.  After a cold and wet start, the sun emerged and it was extremely warm by the time most of the runners came in.

Organisation wasn't great - Madeira Drive was one vast scrum of people and their efforts to move from one place to another was severely hampered by the extremely annoying hi-viz jobsworths, of which there appeared to be hundreds.  Toilet facilities were exceptionally poor given the number of spectators.  I snapped the final part of the race perched up on the prom, being constantly jostled - thankfully I took my teleconverter.

The race was overshadowed by the tragic death of 23 year old Sam Harper Brighouse.
