Step up to the half!
The Half Marathon Starts at 09:00
Join us for the Southampton Half Marathon race this September. The spectacular route includes green parks, shoreline and riverside views, 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 you get a chance to run past the ABP Southampton docks, then over the famous Itchen Bridge, with its glorious views across the Southampton Waters, The Solent and, even, the New Forest.
Following a section by the shoreline at Weston Shore, the route takes you inside the legendary St Mary’s Football Stadium, home to Premiership football team, Southampton (aka The Saints!).
Passing over Northam Bridge with riverside views once again, next you will run through the beautiful Riverside Park, before crossing into Portswood and running through Southampton Common (home to the UK’s second largest parkrun!).
Take in the atmosphere as you head back into the city centre and finish under the towering clock of the Southampton Guildhall, ready to collect your well-deserved medal.
