The thinking behind the route of the Golden Mile was to take advantage of the usual prevailing South Westerly wind direction with an option to rotate the course if the wind was too strong in the opposite direction. The priority was to have a properly certificated measured mile so that we could introduce this iconic distance to the South Coast. Next year's event should see the 5K enjoy the same course certificate
Our Absolute Running website will be updated next week with a link to Runners World. We're very excited about these races and believe that they will be a great addition to Gosport's popular half marathon. A great opportunity for those starting out or as part of a training plan.
