Southampton Marathon 2024

First held in 1982, the Southampton Marathon was one of the most popular running events on the UK calendar in the 1980s.  Sadly though, the event organisers were unable to continue with the operation and the event lay dormant for nearly 30 years. However in 2017, the event made a stunning comeback!

Sponsored by ABP (Associated British Ports), the Marathon is once again back firmly on the UK running calendar. There is also a Half Marathon plus a 10K and a 5K. The combined event is the biggest running event in the city’s history and the event regularly attracts over 20,000 participants. The event has a festival atmosphere and is very well supported by local residents.

The Route

The marathon course is undulating with a challenging climb after mile 10. The route is really enjoyable, especially the sections over the bridges and the final section is also downhill.  Other events include a half marathon, a 10Km race and also a 5Km family fun run.

Already Have Your Own Place?

If you already have your own place and would like to Run 4 Cancer, we would be delighted!  We can fully support you with a training plan and a high performance Run 4 Cancer running vest… perfect for both training in and also for race day!  Just fill in the contact form below and we’ll get in touch right away! Thank you.

Subsidised Entry Fee

We have a number of free and subsidised places available. All we ask is that you try to raise some sponsorship funds in support of Run 4 Cancer.  We set very low minimum sponsorship levels and fully understand that the cost of living crisis is impacting people’s ability to sponsor people.  To reserve your Run 4 Cancer place, get in touch with us using the form below. Many thanks for your support! We really appreciate it.

We give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.
