Overview

The 5k is a popular event to start the weekend for first-time runners looking to take their first steps to the longer distance, but also for people who may no longer feel that their legs will take ten miles of running! An undoubted attraction of the Great South Run 5k is the fact that there is not a hill in sight as Southsea provides a virtually perfectly flat course with lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight.

The Great South Run 5k event was the first 5k event I had completed. Registration was simple (online). The event was well organised on the day, with roads closed along the seafront for both the 5k and the kids event. Marshals were fantastic, and the local support was phenominal...Read full review
