About the Great South Run

Great South Run logoThe fast and flat 10 mile route takes in the iconic sites of the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard including Portsmouth Cathedral, Spinnaker Tower and the HMS Victory- which has played host to the Band of HM Royal Marines, who often perform for passing runners at the iconic site. The final flat stretch along the sea front has given thousands of people the opportunity to get a personal best time for more than twenty years. 

World class athletes who have taken part over the years include Sonia O’Sullivan, Paula Radcliffe and Mo Farah - who scored the first ever victory by a British male athlete since Gary Staines achieved his third and final success 13 years earlier. 
 

We love hearing about our fundraisers overcoming obstacles and helping us to raise money, so make sure you send us your stories.
