Cake at the end and a decent goody bag.. Now you're talking. Seriously though, after a good first time Great South Run yesterday, I've got the bug - and its just a short hop across the ferry for me. Just need to see if my good lady wife is happy looking after the kids on another Sunday morning...?
David.M would your kids do the race?
I've got a seven year old boy, who I might be able to convince. He did the 5Km Santa Run last year and swore he would never do it again. My other is a 21 month old daughter, so I guess she is a bit young for it.
My 6 year old will be doing the kids race, he also did the santa race last year and said never again! I do think maybe the 3 miles was a bit far.
I'm doing this. I did salisbury HM yesterday and finally got under 2 hours so very excited to see what a course without hills will achive.
I have a six and eight yr old, how far is the kids race?
I think the kids race is 1 mile, its about £2 to enter and kids enter on the day, they get a great goody bag and medal, there is also an engraver there which costs about £4, its also mainly on grass

Hi everyone - first post here. Just did the great south as my first ever run and I've really got the bug for it. Thinking to enter the gosport half as its the next one that's anywhere near me.... Is it a viable newby run? Or should I steer clear? Any advice appreciated, James
I've heard good things about it. Its not the most scenic of races, but its a good race i hear. Enough for me to come from Horsham to do it. Nice one to end the year on before Brighton half in the Spring.
Newby James, it is a race of all abilities, I am looking at 2hr 10mins if I am lucky!
Coming from Yeovil Somerset for the frist time for this one, so hope Gosport is as fast as people say it is. Got to be new pb under 01 27 .
Just remember to get there early - there's only one road in and out, and it can get quite congested... Good flat course - not that scenic, but you do get to see the old Hoverspeed cross-channel ferries slowly rotting from the airfield. It's certainly a pb coure, if you're in pb shape.
Thanks for the advice pmo, on the rd at 530am.
No probs Kevin. Can someone stick a j in there ^^^^ for me?
Let's hope 2 things for this one.
If those 2 things are positive, should be a decent chance for a pb is in top form.
Is there any easy way to talk from the train station to the start line? Seems there is a big bit of sea in the way. How long does it take?
