Simplyhealth Great South 5k

Clarence Esplanade, Southsea, Hampshire

Organiser's Description

If you’re new to running, or ten miles isn’t your thing, you can still be a part of the iconic Simplyhealth Great South Run weekend at this popular 5k. Soak up the atmosphere as you experience your own moment of victory when you cross the line.


This fast and flat 5k course is perfect for beginner runners or those who are looking for a personal best across a shorter running route. Runners, joggers and walkers have the bonus of the scenic views of the Solent and the Isle of Wight as they start on Clarence Esplanade. They then head past Clarence Pier and Southsea Common before crossing the finish line close to the Pyramids Centre on the sea front.

Great day

Every one was friendly and helpful, the event was well organised and there were a few stalls selling clothing, run clips and trainers and also a variety of food concessions..a stretch zone and massage area too, after the race a fantastic finishers bag containing the race medal, t shirt and some great goodies...a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish..a big thank you and well done to all those involved in putting on the event, great stuff x
