Event date: Sun 5 May 2019
The race starts and finishes in the heart of Southampton’s city centre with the course passing iconic local landmarks including Bargate, QE2 Anchor and St Mary’s Stadium. Sure to be the race highlight will be running both the ascent and more popularly the descent over the Itchen bridge, which will be closed exclusively for this unique event.
The route takes you alongside the beautiful mouth of the Solent, before going through the Premier league Saints stadium, and then the huge expanse of the common, and finally after your two laps finish in front of the Guildhall in the city centre.
This event is an ideal choice for first time Marathon runners and an exciting new course for seasoned pro’s alike with an estimated 10,000 runners for this event.
A spectator friendly route, with lots of activities, coffee houses and restaurants to explore and make it a weekend away with the whole family.
The registration fee is £30.00 and there is no additional fundraiser, however we do ask you to raise as much as you can for The Fire Fighters Charity.
