Morrisons Great South Run 5K

The 5k in Portsmouth and Southsea is a hugely 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

The popular waterfront city gives visitors the chance to spend time in a popular seaside destination full of culture. With the perfect blend of historic and modern sights, there is something for everyone.

If you are looking for things to do in Portsmouth, why not take a trip up the Spinnaker Tower, which gives you the best view over the city at a height of 170 metres. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground head for a walk around the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard to lap up 800 years of history, home to the world’s oldest commissioned war ship, HMS Victory.
