Every year thousands of people take to the streets of Southampton in this fantastic event for a whole variety of reasons – as a personal challenge, to raise money for charity, even just for fun! The atmosphere is electric and there is nothing more inspiring than standing on the Itchen Bridge and seeing the immense commitment of the incredible people who take part!

At the halfway stage in the league Southampton are 9/10 in Division One (Men) and the Ladies are rooted to the bottom of their division. Hopefully things will improve second half or we might be ‘celebrating’ relegations season end.

HRRL : FORTHCOMING RACES

The next three races in the Hampshire Road Race League are extremely popular.
GOSPORT Half Marathon 18 November 2018
VICTORY 5 2 December 2018
STUBBINGTON 10K 13 January 2019

All three races will top out well in advance. For example 443/800 places were filled for the Victory 5 24/09/2018. There is no point in talking about doing them then bleating about it when you don’t get in ENTER NOW. The maximum numbers of runners allowed at an event is set by the organising clubs negotiation with the local councils .
