Join Team Naomi for the iconic Great South Run!

Take part in the 2021 Great South Run, the biggest 10 mile running course in the world!

The Great South Run is perfect for all running abilitiesm from beginners, right through to experienced runners trying to beat a PB.

The route starts and finishes on Clarence Esplanade in Southsea. The fast and flat course takes you through Old Portsmouth, home of the Portsmouth Cathedral, before entering the Historic Dockyard. Here, you’re granted permission to run past the Royal Navy’s current naval ships, and some of the most famous in the world – including HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose museum!

After exiting the Dockyard you reach the halfway point on Winston Churchill Avenue, before making your way back towards Southsea Common, where you’ll complete the final two miles on the scenic seafront.

The course is steeped in history dating as far back as 1212 and features charity cheering points, boost zones, bands on the run and unrivalled support from local residents and spectators.

What's more, this year we are offering free entry to run for Team Naomi! But there are only 10 spaces available, so sign up quickly to avoid disappointment!


Due to high demand, registration is now closed.

Because the event is free to join, we ask our runners to commit to raise £199 in fundraising to go towards the vital work of Naomi House & Jacksplace. Read our terms and conditions for more information.
