All distances start and finish in the centrally located Southampton Guildhall Square. 

This inspiring route begins in the city centre before running past ABP Southampton docks, then over the famous Itchen Bridge with its glorious views across the Southampton Waters, The Solent, and the New Forest. 

Following a section by the shoreline at Weston Shore, the route takes you inside the legendary St Mary’s Football Stadium, home to Premiership football team, Southampton (aka The Saints!). 

Passing over Northam Bridge with riverside views once again, you will run through the beautiful Riverside Park before crossing into Portswood and running through Southampton Common which is home to the UK’s second largest parkrun!

If you are part of the full marathon then, it’s time for the second lap. Now you know what to expect, it’s time to find your rhythm and really enjoy the sites and landmarks…then focus on reaching that finish line.

Every penny donated will support Mountbatten Hampshire to make sure patients and their families have access to skilled, compassionate, and sensitive care in a place of their choice.

This can include providing specialist end-of-life care to patients with life-limiting illness in their home or in our inpatient unit and day centre. We also support patients’ families, friends and carers through their illness and bereavement. As an independent charity, every donation makes a real impact to local people.
