The Great South Run takes you through Portsmouth, following a 10 mile route around the city passing the famous Historic Dockyard at Victory Gate, Spinnaker Tower, and finishing on the seafront with beautiful views of the Isle of Wight.
The course is fast, flat and fun, with fantastic crowds and music to keep you going. It’s the perfect race for beginners and experienced runners alike. Finally, the flat stretch along the sea front to the finish line gives you the perfect opportunity to make a personal best.
