Great South Run

Sunday 20 October 2019

Great South Run

Join Team Royal Voluntary Service in 2019 as we take on the Great South Run.

Join the 20,000 runners this October and take on this 10 mile course. The run takes you through the streets of Portsmouth passing the sights of HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose Museum. This distance is said to be one of the toughest to master; between a 10k and half marathon pacing and training is everything. Sign up and push yourself to the limit for Royal Voluntary Service.

We have a small number of guaranteed places for this event. In return for a fundraising target of £200, we'll send you everything you need to ensure a great race experience. You'll get a fundraising guide, professional training guides, lots of fundraising support and your very own running top to wear on the day.

Date: 20 October 2019
Location: Portsmouth
Registration fee: £20
Minimum fundraising: £200
