Race places are getting snapped up quickly for the Bupa Great South Run, so make sure you reserve your spot. A staggering 25,000 runners will take on this event on October 28 – and there are only 3,500 places left.
We took part in the race a few years ago and gave it top marks. It has a scenic route through Portsmouth’s historic dockyard and a charming seafront stretch to the finish. Streets were packed with supporters and the Bupa Boost Zone gave us the perfect sugar hit. But don't just take our word - check out your ratings for last year’s race.
The chase also has the honour of being crowned the only 10-miler in the world to be awarded the IAAF Gold label status. You’ll also be able to spot a few elites lining up to take the title - previous winners have included running royalty Mo Farah, Paula Radcliffe and Sonia O’Sullivan.
