ORGANISERS of the Brighton Half Marathon have apologised to runners after finding out its course has been 146m short for the past three years.

An investigation found a turning point just after the four-mile mark, near Roedean School, had not been positioned properly.

Organisers said the concerns were based on an analysis of the GPS data of various runners.

They said: ‘We are devastated that this mistake has happened and apologise unreservedly to all runners who took part in the affected race years.’
