Last year’s event was supported by around 1,500 volunteers.

Beverly Sawyers, vice president at American Express said: “Whether you’re volunteering for the first time, or if you’re one of the seasoned volunteers who tirelessly support the Brighton Marathon Weekend year on year, it’s the energy and enthusiasm of every single one of you that helps make the Brighton Marathon Weekend possible.”

Volunteer registration closes on April 5.
