30,000 expected at Southampton marathon

Ten thousand runners and up to 30,000 visitors are expected in Southampton tomorrow for the city's first full marathon in more than 30 years.

Four different runs will be taking place - the ABP full marathon (26.2 miles), the ABP Half marathon (13.1 miles), the ABP 10k and the ABP one mile family fun run.

Organisers say the event will create a welcome boost for the city’s economy, they're estimating that £750,000 will be spent in hotels, car parks, shops and restaurants. This year’s route will take participants in the opposite direction to previous years. For the first time ever, runners will take on three of the city’s bridges; Cobden, Northam and the Itchen Bridge. It will also go through St Mary’s Stadium.

All runners will finish in the race village in Guildhall Square. At the event’s climax it’s expected that 430 people will cross the finish line every 60 seconds.
