Great South Run 5K

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the 5k in Portsmouth and Southsea. You should be very proud of yourselves. We hope to see you again next year on Saturday 22 October 2016, entries are now open.

The 5k is a popular event to start the weekend for first-time runners looking to take their first steps to the longer distance, but also for people who may no longer feel that their legs will take ten miles of running!

An undoubted attraction of the Great South Run 5k is the fact that there is not a hill in sight as Southsea provides a virtually perfectly flat course with lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight.

The Course

Event location

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.
