It’s not just our grown-up runners who love to be by the seaside – our mini and junior runners love it, too! Give younger athletes a taste of that big event buzz with an entry into the AJ Bell Mini (3-8) or Junior (9-15) Great South Run and kickstart a lifelong love of being active. With crazy costumes, music and so much more, you’re guaranteed a fantastic day out, plenty of sea air and an unforgettable finish line feeling.

Find your superpower!

We want each and every one of our young runners, and spectators, to discover their own superpower – whether it’s racing, fundraising or being a superstar spectator. We’re also inviting our enthusiastic runners (big and small!) to come in superhero fancy dress on the day! We’re thinking capes, eye masks and something else to showcase your own power…

Mini entrants (3-8 yrs) must run with a parent, each child should be entered into the event. Junior entrants do not need to be accompanied by an adult although this can be requested upon entry if required, each child should be entered into the event.
