Great South Run

Join us for the Great South Run, the world’s premier 10 mile running event, taking place in Portsmouth on Sunday, 21st October 2018. An estimated 25,000 runners, including celebrities and elite athletes, will take to the streets on a route that features Portsmouth’s historic naval dockyard. This flat 10 mile race is perfect for people of all abilities, from complete beginners to seasoned runners.

We ask our runners to raise £300. The money you raise will provide personal, emotional support to people in crisis with nowhere else to turn. This can make all the difference to vulnerable people during their darkest moments. We'll do everything we can to help you smash your target. More information about the race can be found here.
