FAMILIES at the Southampton Marathon were given the chance to lace up their running trainers and hit the track, as the popular Fun Run returned.

After the competitive runners had cleared the area, the all-ages event was held, which allowed parents to run with their children at a more relaxed pace.

Starting at 4pm, the Fun Run also saw the return of the ‘Mascot Mile’, which saw members from participating charity and businesses members dress up for the occasion.
