HUNDREDS of people pounded Hampshire streets to raise money for charity.

Nearly £100,000 was raised through the Barratt Homes Relay Marathon.

Starting at Broadlands Estate in Romsey, 95 teams took part to the event organised by the Rotary Club.

Participants ran 2.6 miles before handing the baton over to their team members.

They supported several local charities, including the Piam Brown unit, an oncology and haematology centre at Southampton General Hospital.

Charlie Daniel-Hobbs, chairman of the organising committee, said: “ The day went extremely well. It was super. We are delighted.”

The initiative, which has run annually for five years, was supported by 11 local businesses.

“The first year we had 30 teams. It’s tripled in size in only five years,” Charlie said.

He confirmed that the replay marathon will be run again on May 13, 2018 and registration will open towards the end of this year.
