Success at Southampton Races

On Saturday 23rd April, Southampton was taken over by runners from around the country participating in 10km and half marathon events.

More than 5,000 people took on the 13.5mile challenge, while another 1,500 runners completed the 10km distance.

Following a 30 year gap, 2016 saw the Southampton races returnĀ for its second consecutive year, with Hendy Kia as proud transport partners.

Hendy Kia Eastleigh provided an All New Kia Sportage to support the event, helping the front runners to keep their pace. The winners of the half marathon were a couple who sped over the finish line just an hour after they started.

Corporate sponsorship and community support for the runners has helped this event raise thousands of pounds for over 500 charities.
