Course information

The Southampton 3k Race for Life route starts on the main area of The Common, opposite the playground. It follows the tree lined paths of The Common, follows Cemetry Road and returns to the The Common to finish.

The 3k route is mostly the same as the 5k, with a diversion on route to shorten the distance. The surface is relatively flat and on tarmac throughout so is lovely and gentle.

Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

The Southampton course is mainly on tarmac paths or roads around The Common. The 10k will finish on the grass of The Common. Due to these elements we deem the route as suitable for wheelchair users with assistance.

There is no allocated drop off points but all roads around The Common are accessible during the event. Only Cemetry Road is closed including the car park there.
