The Race Course for Great South Run

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.

 

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.

 

About Portsmouth

With the perfect blend of historic and modern sights, there is something for everyone in Portsmouth and Southsea.

If you are looking for things to do in the popular waterfront city, why not take a trip up Spinnaker Tower? At 170 metres high you will experience beautiful views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, head for a walk around Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and marvel at HMS Victory and the Mary Rose Museum, which houses Henry VIII’s flagship that sank in 1545.
