Great South Run
The next Great South Run is scheduled for 17th October 2021, sign up to our reminder service to be notified when entries open.
Sadly we couldn't run together this year, but we can still mark the occasion of what would have been the 31st Great South Run...
Each year more than 20,000 people line up for the Great South Run, 1,000 budding running stars of the future compete in the Junior & Mini event, hundreds take on the Saturday 5k, many do the Saturday 5k and Sunday 10 mile double… and in recent years 100 barking mad dogs & their owners set off on the Canine Run.
The Great South Run means so many different things to so many people; for most it’s a personal challenge, for thousands it’s a chance to fundraise for good causes, for some it’s an annual fixture in the calendar.
We’ll be back bigger & better, but we hope you can still join us in some way this weekend.
The Great South Run wouldn’t be the same without all of the amazing charity fundraisers, world beating athletes, and of course the fancy dress. We’ve delved into the archives to find stories of very special people who have achieved inspirational feats at the Great South Run:

With a flat course this seemed an ideal opportunity to take on such a challenge.
It was amazing to be a part of an event with so many others raising money for charity. The setting and atmosphere in Portsmouth and Southsea at the time of the event is always great!
A lot of us had never ran 10 miles before so it was a challenge, but thinking of Matthew kept us all going and the support on course was just incredible.
The run was the culmination of a great year: I lost weight, married my beautiful partner who has been so inspirational to me and ran my first 10 miles in an amazing location.
