2019 Great South Run

Join Team HIOWAA at the Great South Run!

Date: 20th October 2019
Distance: 10 miles
Location: Portsmouth

Experience the south coast’s best 10 mile event and celebrate everything that’s great about Portsmouth. If you’re looking for a PB, this flat and fast course is the perfect choice for your greatest victory.

The 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.

Register:
