When you arrive, make your way to the start and finish area – look out for the Big Fun Run pyramid and you’ll know you’ve reached the right place. Dress code is fun so wear whatever you like – fancy dress is always welcome however a comfortable pair of trainers is a must! Our friendly event team will be there to welcome you and play some great tunes to get you in the mood for some fun. 

Make sure that you arrive 15 minutes before the start to take part in the Big Fun Warm up. The event is not timed so don’t worry about rushing round. There will be signage and marshals along the route to cheer you on and make sure no-one goes the wrong way. Once you come through the finish line you will be greeted by our friendly MC and finish team who will give you a bottle of water, an event goody bag and your well deserved Big Fun Run medal.  Remember your camera or phone and why not make your way to the Big Fun Run podium where you can take your picture along with anyone you’ve come with.

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 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. For further information and travel/parking details at the Common please click here.

The course starts and finishes on an open flat area of grass and from then onwards, the route remains on path throughout, until reaching the finish area. Apart from approximately 50m of grass at the start / finish, the Big Fun Run Southampton route is suitable for wheelchair users.
