ABP Southampton Marathon

Join us

Join Team Macmillan for the ABP Southampton Marathon! This fantastic event offers runners the chance to do a marathon run along closed roads through the heart of Southampton.

The race starts and finishes in the heart of Southampton’s city centre with the run course passing iconic local landmarks including Bargate, QE2 Anchor 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 be closed exclusively for this unique event.

How to enter

There are two ways to get yourself signed up for the ABP Southampton Marathon.

Macmillan Charity Place: No public entry stress! We ask you to pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £400 for your guaranteed place in the ABP Southampton Marathon, and there’s no registration fee. To apply, simply click the ‘get a place’ button and complete our online application form.

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

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.

    Why be part of the green team?

    But we can’t do it without you. Join Team Macmillan for ABP Southampton Marathon and we will treat you like the superhero you are from the moment you sign up through to when you cross the finish line. Life with cancer is still a life. Join Team Macmillan and help people live it.
