On Sunday 22nd October the Great South Run returns to Portsmouth and it’s 10 mile scenic course.
Starting and finishing on Clarence Esplanade in Southsea, the fast and flat course takes you through Old Portsmouth, home of the Portsmouth Cathedral, before entering the Historic Dockyard. Here you’re granted permission to run past the Royal Navy’s current naval ships, and some of the most famous in the world – including HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose museum.
After exiting the Dockyard you reach the halfway point on Winston Churchill Avenue, before making your way back towards Southsea Common, where you’ll complete the final two miles on the scenic seafront.
The course is steeped in history dating as far back as 1212 and features charity cheering points, boost zones, bands on the run and unrivalled support from local residents and spectators.
The weekend also includes the Great South Run 5k and the Junior and Mini Great South Run, which are staged the day before the 10 mile event.
Join the Great South Run on Sunday 22nd October, the day kicks of at 7:00am. Entry is £41.
