All distances Start and Finish in the centrally located Southampton Guildhall Square.
The ABP Southampton Half Marathon provides a flavour of all Southampton has to offer, from green parks to the shoreline, running Riverside and through some of the historic landmarks of the city too!
This spectacular route begins in the city centre (with easy access, regardless of how you travel to the race village); before running past the ABP Southampton docks, over the famous Itchen Bridge with it’s glorious views out to the Southampton Waters, The Solent and the New Forest. Following a section by the shoreline at Weston Shore, the return over the Bridge takes you actually inside the legendary St Mary’s Football Stadium (home to Saints FC!) Passing over Northam Bridge with riverside views again, you run through the beautiful Riverside Park before crossing into Portswood and running through the Southampton Common (home to the UK’s second largest parkrun!)
This takes you onto the home straight where you can power through for a sprint Finish – cross the Finish Line, victorious and ready to receive your wonderful medal and Finisher tee!
