Run for Charity

If you are keen to get involved as a charity, then why not take a look at further details of our Charity Packages

Some run for fun, others run for fitness, but so many are now running for great causes!

Since 2015, when the ABP Southampton Half Marathon and 10k launched, runners have raised over £500,000 for good causes. 

If you would like to run in the ABP Southampton Marathon, Half and 10k, you can get a guaranteed entry with one of our charity partners. Every charity will support you, offering fundraising tips to reach your goals, as well as significant support and advice in the lead up to, and on your big day.

Please find our charity partners listed below:

RMS Titanic - Lead Charity

Macmillan Cancer Support - Lead National Charity

Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of people affected by cancer. One in three of us will get cancer and 2.5 million of us are living with it, with that number rising to four million by 2030. We can help because we are Macmillan.

Every day 29 people in Hampshire, where the ABP Southampton Marathon is being held, hear the devastating news they have cancer. This will see Hampshire’s population of people living with cancer more than double between 2010 and 2030. This huge increase will in turn result in thousands more local people feeling isolated and alone, every day, even after treatment ends. Macmillan and its supporters must take action now to make sure we’re there to solve these issues.

When you're facing cancer it can feel like you've lost control, Macmillan is here to help you take it back. Whether it's a nurse being there from the moment you're diagnosed, a helping hand with your everyday chores, advice about money worries or just someone ready to listen when you need to talk. Cancer isn't going away but if you run for Team Macmillan, we can help make sure no one faces it alone

Together, we are all Macmillan Cancer Support.

Naomi House & Jacksplace

Naomi House & Jacksplace hospices provide expert hospice care to more than 280 life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their extended families from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Berkshire, West Sussex, Surrey and the Isle of Wight.

The teams take time to really get to know the families and fully understand their wishes. Naomi House & Jacksplace offer them vital respite support, giving them the chance to recharge their batteries and regroup in a calm, fun and welcoming environment. In times of emergency Naomi House & Jacksplace is there, giving families the help they need through difficult times. And at the end of a child or young person's life, the charity pulls out all the stops to give them a peaceful and dignified end, surrounded by family members.

This standard of care costs money; £7 million per year to be precise. With only 10% of income coming from Government and statutory sources, Naomi House & Jacksplace are reliant on the support of people like you.

That's where Naomi House & Jacksplace needs you! Why not join the team for the Southampton Half Marathon? Your effort in the race, and build up of donations, will allow the charity to continue their long-standing care for these children & young people, as well as their extended families. All runners will have the chance to purchase a running vest, and will receive full fundraising support!
