Solent Music is working with the ABP Southampon Half Marathon and 10K to bring music to several venues around the course.
On Sunday 24th April, thousands of runners will be taking part in the second ABP Half Marathon and 10K events in the heart of the city of Southampton.
The half marathon course passes iconic local landmarks including Bargate, QE2 Anchor and St Mary’s Stadium, before heading to Bitterne, Portswood and Southampton Common and then back to Guildhall Square.
Southampton Solent University is the official education partner of the event, and Solent Music is providing musical performances from students and alumni at a number of sites around the course:

Raising money for local causes is the main aim and focus for this event, through runner donations and charity places for the Mayors Charities and funds towards the upkeep of the Southampton Running track and Sports Centre.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to support a great cause and to encourage the runners as they make their way around the course. Our performers and technical crews from the BA Hons Popular Music Performance, BA Hons Digital Music and BA Hons Live Sound Technology courses are looking forward to the challenges of running multiple events across the city, and wish all the runners (including quite a few staff and students of the University) a great time!”
