Guaranteed Charity Place

see below for details.


This historic 10 mile course dates back to 1212 and is the perfect challenge for beginners or those looking to set a PB. Starting on the Clarence Esplanade, the course takes you through old Portsmouth. You pass by the spectacular Spinnaker Tower and through dockyard pass some of the most famous ships including HMS Victory and the Royal Navy’s current fleet.

Guaranteed charity places

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Great South Run, all runners have been transferred to the 2021 race. We therefore only had limited places available, which have now all been filled.

Ballot places

If you had a 2020 place and have recently decided you would like to run for #TeamSands in 2021, then it’s not too late. You can join #TeamSands using your own ballot place below:
