The Southampton 5k 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 surface is relatively flat and on tarmac throughout so is lovely and gentle.
The meeting point is Southampton Common, opposite the playground.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as and when needed.
Please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your start time.
There is no parking at the event on The Common. Please use public transport where possible or city centre car parks.
Southampton Central train station is a 30 minute walk away or St Denys train station is a 25 minute walk away.
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.
If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Race for Life event, or wish to bring a carer/helper to accompany you, please contact our Supporter Hotline on 0300 123 0770 and press 1 when prompted (Opening hours are 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday) or email us at email@example.com
Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
We will be giving away bottled water at the finish line. But due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and our plans to reduce single use plastics at our events we encourage participants to bring their own water or hydration fluids on the day.
