I’ve never actually been down to watch the runners, let alone take part, but I understand it’s quite a sight to see 10,000 people running along the seafront. The Bupa Great South Run is notably labeled as Europes leading 10 mile road race and was awarded the coveted IAAF gold label status, becoming the first 10 miler in the world to be given the accolade for its exceptional standards of organisation and world class elite fields. Pretty impressive
If like me the thought of running makes your legs cry then you can watch it live on Channel 5 this Sunday 28th October from 10.00am.
Good luck to everyone who is taking part and remember to think like Linford and make sure to stretch before and after. Like I know what I’m talking about…
I believe there are 30,000 runners this year…..
I normally watch it on TV but went down last year, it’s well worth seeing it in the flesh. Serious props to all the people running for charities.

I am taking part in the 5k run which is on the Saturday, and there are children’s runs then too.
So do not forget about us!
This is my first ever run, after only just taking up running at the age of 44.
Next year I want to do the big one.

I will be running for Stroke Association in the 10 mile great south run this year and looking forward to it!
