We would like to ensure that our upcoming ABP Southampton Marathon, Half Marathon & 10k in Southampton causes you as minimal disruption as possible.

The event will be starting and finishing in the Southampton Guildhall Square. The Full & Half Marathons will start at 9am with the 10k starting at 10am.

The fastest runners are expected to finish by 10:15, with the slowest not finishing until 14:45.

There are 3 different distances that will be taking place on the day; a Marathon (26.2 miles), Half Marathon (13.1 miles) and a 10k race. Some roads within the City centre will be closed for set periods and we are expecting there to be some delays between 08:30 – 15:00 due to the number of people taking part and spectating.

We aim to cause minimal disruption to you on Sunday 5th May 2019, and we will have traffic management in place to ensure your journey into the city is as smooth as possible.

All pavements remain open as usual so please consider making your journey on foot or bicycle. Our marshals will be happy to help you cross the flow of runners when it is safe to do so. 

We would be delighted if you would like to take part in our event, either through spectating, volunteering or running.

In order to help us to improve the event we welcome your feedback, to ensure future years are a success. 

The route for 2019 is similar to the 2018 route - CHECK IT OUT 

 Please note there will also be some alterations to the BUSES on Race Day 5th May.
