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. 

Inspirational Runners

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:
