Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great South Run

Join thousands of young runners who will be pounding the pavements of the South coast for the Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great South Run next Autumn. 

2,500 youngsters will warm up the streets of Southsea, Portsmouth on Saturday 20 October 2018 at the biggest children's running event in the South ahead of the Simplyhealth Great South Run 10 mile event which takes place the following day. Budding athletes, school friends and families can take on the 1.5k and 2.5k courses that take place in and around Southsea Common.

All child participants will receive their very own running t-shirt, a goodie-filled finisher's pack and that all important finisher's medal.

For any kids looking to take on a longer distance, the Simplyhealth Great South 5k takes place on the same day and is suitable for ages 14 and over. 


The Course

Both the Junior and Mini routes start on Clarence Esplanade, opposite the Skate Park. From here, all the runners head west past the D-Day museum and Blue Reef Aquarium.

Mini runners then turn right into Serpentine Way while Junior runners head up to a turnaround point next to Mozzarella Joes. Both runs then head up Serpentine Way and down Lady’s Mile to reach Avenue De Caen. The kids then head for the finish back on Clarence Esplanade.
