The Southampton Big Fun Run is a scenic course that takes place on the Common which is a much loved and well used green space. The Start/Finish area is located on the playing field/cricket pitch adjacent to the lake and the route incorporates the park trail pathways. The start/finish area will be indicated by a large inflatable archway. Please note that the route may be subject to change.
The Common is a area of stunning natural beauty. It's the largest open space in the City boundaries (326 acre site). It is one of the UK’s most important wildlife sites, it's a haven for flora and fauna and has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and internationally listed as a site of excellence.
Runners will be able to store baggage in a gazebo next to the start area, however there is no changing facilities available.
