Cheer squads

Why not get together a group of friends and set up a cheer point along the course. When you get close to end of any challenge, a little bit of encouragement and cheering really does go a long way.

Mile Markers

We love to have local groups helping out at the event, managing areas such as the baggage hall or water stations, as well as marshalling a mile. In return ABP Southampton Marathon will donate £250 to us as your chosen charity. 

They have 13.1 miles to cover and you will need a minimum of 20 people to gain the £250. This will be awarded in the form of a cheque to your group after the event by one of the Marafun team on behalf of ABP Southampton. Register your interest to be mile marker below.

Southampton Hospital Charity are dedicated to working alongside our friends and partners from the local community as, together, we raise funds for University Hospital Southampton beyond the scope of NHS resources.

With the support of the community, we strive to enhance and transform the treatment, care and support that we are able to provide for our patients and their families as well as investing in advancements in clinical research, treatments and equipment.

Supporting your local hospital charity is a rewarding experience. YOU can make a difference to the lives of the 750,000 patients cared for every year by the hospitals' 11,000 staff right now.

Our hospitals provide a wide range of healthcare services for people living not just in Southampton, but throughout central southern England and the Channel Islands. The chances are that if you live in Hampshire, you will know several people who have been referred to our hospitals for our specialist services including Southampton Children’s Hospital, cancer, eye, neurogical, heart, and emergency care. As such, we encourage you to support any area of our services closest to your heart.
