2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage... 

One of the most influential journeys in global history and a defining moment in the shared history of Britain, the US and the Netherlands. 

The anniversary provides a special opportunity to inspire people across our nations with the stories of that iconic voyage, exploring themes of migration, tolerance, freedom and democracy that have such a contemporary relevance. 

Southampton will host a year long programme of events and activities to celebrate and commemorate this historic legacy, co-ordinated along side headline sponsors Paris Smith LLP.

Planned events include:

The ABP Mayflower Marathon - This renamed event offers runners the choice of a Marathon, Half Marathon or 10km race, along with a new Mayflower route through the heart of Southampton.

The Mayflower Cup - The 2017 event saw over 40 International teams take part with a mixture of pro-club academy teams and grassroots clubs and will be renamed for 2020

Mayflower Maritime Festival - Anniversary events commemorating 400 years since the Pilgrims sailed from Holland to England and then to America

Plus many more ...
