The Marathon route is an exciting mix of coast, city and parks. This route is predominantly flat, perfect for a debut marathon! This is a 2 lapped route, which means you have twice the fun and you know whats coming up.
Just like the half marathon and 10k in 2017, you’ll get the chance to run over the Itchen Bridge during your race journey.
At the top of the bridge almost 100ft up, you’ll experience a feast for the eyes with the beautiful view of the city, the River Itchen, commercial centre and out to sea towards the Isle of Wight.
There are many delights on this route including running across the Itchen bridge, alongside the beautiful mouth of the Solent, before running through the Premier league Saints stadium, through the huge expanse of the common, then finally after your two laps finish in front of the Guildhall in the city centre.
This event is an ideal choice for first time Marathon runners and an exciting new course for seasoned pro’s alike. We are expecting approximately 10,000 runners for this event.
A spectator friendly route, with lots of activities, coffee houses and restaurants to explore and make it a weekend away with the whole family.
