If you can’t come in these two days you can always do it prior to the event the following morning from 4:45am on Friday 21st July.
You can still register on Wednesday and Thursday at the Jubilee Library, Brighton and on the day.
Car Parks near the start/finish on New Road

Participants have two parking options – one of the off-street car parks or an on-street bay.

There are two car parks roughly the same distance from New Road: Trafalgar Street and The Lanes. Both are about an 8–10 minute walk away.

At that time of day, car park customers pay a flat-rate ‘night’ tariff (midnight-11am). Parking at night in The Lanes costs £5.00 (£5.50 at Trafalgar Street). While both car parks are open 24/7, Trafalgar Street will have the greatest capacity – it’s typically empty until the weekday rush hour.

The alternative is to park for free in a nearby pay-and-display bay. Restrictions do not kick in until 9am. As long as you leave by 9am, you can park without paying for a ticket.
