Thousands of runners are to take to the streets of Southampton for the ABP Marathon, half marathon and fun run today.

Last year the city saw 30,000 spectators and an estimated £1m spent in the city that weekend due to the event.

The event has raised £750,000 for charity, so is a perfect way for people to raise money and awareness for charities they are passionate about.

The race village opens at 7.30am with the marathon and half marathon getting under way at 9am.

Up to 8,000 runners will be taking part across all the events.

Here is all you need to know for timings and route for the races.
