The Bupa Great South Run started life in Southampton back in 1990 before moving just a few miles along the M27 motorway to the neighbouring city of Portsmouth 12 months later. The fast and flat 10 mile route takes in the iconic sites of the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard including Portsmouth Cathedral, Spinnaker Tower and the HMS Victory- which has played host to the Band of HM Royal Marines, who often perform for passing runners at the iconic site. The final flat stretch along the sea front has given thousands of people the opportunity to get a personal best time for more than twenty years. The Bupa Great South Run has grown into a great weekend of running in the popular seaside location, along with the Bupa Junior & Mini Great South Run and the introduction of the Bupa Great South Run 5k in 2011.

Hiya, let me start off by thanking you so much for visiting my page and I hope now that you are here you will take the time to sponsor me. It would be amazing if you could.
I'm not going to lie to you. I hate running. I hate it with a passion. However, I believe in my charity of The Royal British Legion Women's Section and when you believe in something you will push yourself to support it in any way you can.
To this end I am hoping to run (without stopping) The Bupa Great South Run.
Please help me during the times when I think that I should give up and stop by showing your support.
