Great South Run 2024

The South Coast’s biggest and best running event returns to Portsmouth on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th October! Soak up the big event experience by choosing your challenge and taking on either the 5k or 10-mile route.

The Great South Run 10-mile route takes place in Portsmouth and starts and finishes on the glorious Southsea seafront, just a short walk from our hoverport. The route offers a 'run' through history, passing iconic landmarks including the Historic Dockyard, HMS Victory and Southsea Castle. With music and entertainment zones at every kilometre and some of the best (and loudest) crowd support, it is an event experience like no other.

Want to be part of the action but not ready to take on 10 miles? The 5k is the perfect way to experience sea views and race day atmosphere along a shorter route. Or gear your little runners up for an event like no other with the Junior & Mini Great South Run – there’ll be encouraging tunes, high-fives, and a huge sense of personal achievement guaranteed.

Whether you are taking part or spectating, fly across the Solent in under 10-minutes on the fastest ferry route across the Solent.
