ABP Southampton Marathon

30 days ago Wed 24th Apr 2019

Legs and shoes of people can be seen mid-run in the background, while in a white box it says 'Sunday 5th May', and in a yellow box it says 'Diversion and timetable information'. The ABP Southampton log is in the lower right corner.

Sunday 5th May sees the return of the ABP Southampton Marathon, half marathon, 10k road race and Fun Run in and around Southampton City Centre.

The event will significantly impact the running of most, if not all, of our services, with many roads closed throughout the day, so below is all our diversion and timetable information, so you can plan your day knowing when and where our buses will be.

Heading down to watch? Why not hop on a Bluestar or Unilink bus for hassle-free travel to the City Centre and no parking worries! Sit back and relax on board with USB charging ports and free Wi-Fi on the majority of our buses. It even counts towards making the Bluestar Promise - as by swapping one car journey for one bus journey each week, you're helping keep Southampton green and reducing congestion on our roads.

And if you are running or marshalling the event, how does FREE TRAVEL sound? Just show your entry details/ID card to our drivers when you board!

Here's how our services will be running on the day:

All timings in the diversion descriptions above are approximate, please refer to PDF/online timetables for exact details.
