My Good South Run experience!
Remaining month I was lucky adequate to take part throughout the grand finale of this 12 months’s Good Run sequence, the Simplyhealth Good South Run in Portsmouth, one among many world’s major 10-mile working events.
As a result of the runner (and I exploit that point interval loosely) of the Excessive Santé crew, I’ve attended just some events in my time, nevertheless I can truly say that this was one amongst my favourites! It was such a well-organised and nice event, with so much help throughout the route.
The course was fast and flat and accomplished alongside Southsea sea entrance and included a run by way of Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, residence to HMS Victory and the Mary Rose Museum. The ultimate two miles of the 10-mile stretch may have been the toughest (and windiest), nevertheless that they had been truly in all probability essentially the most pretty and the views truly saved me going!
The course was steeped in historic previous and interspersed with charity cheering elements, improve zones, bands on the run (reside music dotted throughout the route, merely as soon as I needed it) and unrivalled help from native residents!
Getting proper right down to Portsmouth was a great outdated trek from the place I’m based in Cambridgeshire, but it surely absolutely was utterly positively definitely worth the journey – I went residence with an infinite smile on my face and I’m eagerly planning one different outing to one among many Simplyhealth Good Runs subsequent 12 months.
Whether or not or not you’re an expert runner or just transferring into it, I extraordinarily advocate the sequence. There are distances to go nicely with most abilities (from one mile to a half marathon) and completely completely different groups throughout the longer races, so you can run with people of the identical ability to you.
