The race starts and finishes in the heart of Southampton’s city centre with the course passing iconic local landmarks including Southampton Docks and St Mary’s Stadium. Sure to be the race highlight will be running both the ascent and more popularly the descent over the Itchen bridge, which will give you glorious views of Southampton Waters, The Solent and the New Forest.

Why should I join Team Macmillan?
Whichever way you choose to join, as part of Team Macmillan, we’ll make sure you have:
- Our bumper fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
- Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
- Regular e-newsletters keeping you in the loop in the lead up to race day.
- And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!
Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.
We need an army of cheerers to make this event special. If running is not your thing or you have any family and friends who'd like to come and support you on the day, we'd love them to join our volunteer team!
