The Bupa Great South Run returns for its 25th staging on Sunday 26 October. The 10-mile event takes place in Southsea and Portsmouth, featuring a fast and flat course steeped in history dating as far back as 1212.
Runners of all abilities will pass naval landmarks and cathedrals, and are also granted permission to run through Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, home of HMS Victory - Admiral Lord Nelson’s flagship which achieved lasting fame in Britain's greatest naval victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.
