Brighton Trail Marathon – it’s a breeze!

With the Brighton Trail Weekend coming to the city this weekend, what better way to travel to and from the event than by bus?

Working with us and Brighton & Hove Buses, event organisers Grounded Events have funded three additional ‘Breeze Up to the Downs’ buses to run on Sunday 26 June from early morning until 6pm.

This will mean the 78 between the city centre and Stanmer Park and the 79 to Ditchling Beacon will each run twice as often, approximately every 30 minutes instead of hourly.

You can find details of the 78 and 79 bus routes, times and fares at

About the Brighton Trail Marathon

The Brighton Trail Weekend consists of the marathon which will begin at East Brighton Park at 8:30am and finish at Stanmer Park, along with Kids and 10K events starting and finishing in Stanmer Park. Entries are still open for anyone wishing to take on the 10K

Using the Breeze Buses will be an ideal way for family, friends and spectators to cheer their runners at the top of the iconic Ditchling Beacon climb, and meet people at the finish line if you haven’t already pre-booked your parking.
