It’s time to take on the 10
Join us for the Southampton 10km Race Challenge this September. It’s the perfect route for a PB with green parks to enjoy and inspiring views of the city’s landmarks and waterside location to drive you forward, beginning and ending at the iconic Southampton Guildhall.
Starting and finishing in the centre of Southampton ensures easy access and exit on race day, with plenty of car parks, buses and the Central train station to choose form.
All distances start and finish in the centrally located Southampton Guildhall Square.
This inspiring route begins in the city centre before taking you through Queen’s Park. You’ll then run over the famous Itchen Bridge with its glorious views across the Southampton Waters, The Solent and, even, the New Forest.
Following a loop around Woolston (usually full of the most supportive spectators!), you’ll head back towards the city centre, over Northam Bridge, taking you right past the legendary St Mary’s Stadium, home of Southampton’s Premiership football team (aka the Saints!).
Continuing through St Mary’s, using the underpass, you’ll run through more of the city’s green spaces, in the shadow of Solent University, proud to be one of this year’s partners.
With a final loop, you’ll be on to the home straight ready to focus on the finish line…and perhaps a final sprint!
