Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great South Run

The Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great South Run is now sold out! Good luck to everyone taking part this weekend, we can't wait to see you on the start line. Join the 90's party at this year's Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great South Run! We'd like to encourage you and the kids to embrace the fancy dress theme and you could win a number of prizes on the day. We are celebrating the 30th Great South Run this year and that's why we want to remember where it all started... The 90's! So whether it's the Power Rangers, Disney characters or Mr Blobby - we'd love to see your take on the theme. 


Your run number

If you have already received your run number then you are good to go, and you don't need to come and register on the day. You can go straight to your assembly area at the start. Please ensure your run number is not covered or obstructed i.e. by a bumbag, as this could affect the accuracy of your time (junior runners only).

If you entered after 10am on Friday 11 October, you will need to collect your run number from our customer services team, who will be based in a cabin near the skate park on Clarence Esplanade (opposite the Pyramid Centre - where the baggage-drop area is) at the following times:

Saturday 19 October: Open from 08:00 to 16:00

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.
