Spectators Guide

Know someone who is running or just want to be part of the atmosphere? 

Well, why not come out and enjoy some Southampton Smiles and cheer on 10,000 runners as they take on the ABP Southampton Marathon, Half and 10k.

To keep you excited and to keep the runner running to the beat we have some local talent out on the route.

If you see the runners please do give them a cheer and a wave and enjoy the best that Southampton has to offer!


Spectator Hotspots:

Southampton Guildhall - The Start

The Race Village is located here so it will be buzzing with excitement as the runners do their warm-up countdown to the start and then head off.

Once the runners have gone there is plenty of entertainment coming on our big screen as you can watch live footage, see interviews with runners and then the Awards presentation to Winners at 12 30. 

Pop into town for a drink, snack or bite to eat!

Timings: 0700 - 1300


Guildhall Square - Finish Line

Directly in the middle of the Guildhall square, our fabulous host will be keeping the spectators entertained and welcoming the runners across the line!  

There will be food and drinks available here and you can head to Sprinkles for Ice cream after!
