Race Information

The 30th Gosport Half Marathon will be held on November 15th 2015, entries will open in the spring.

Race entries tend to be evenly split between Club and non Club Runners, so there is a good mix of abilities that ensures the race feels busy but rarely crowded. The race is a venue for the Hampshire Road Race League and unfortunately is not suitable for wheelchair athletes.

Entries (27/10/14) 

Entries are up to about 1800 already and are likely to reach the race limit before the closing date of Nov7th.

Don't leave entering until the last minute to avoid disappointment!

New course

The new Course has been completed. The route starts and finishes at Browndown Rd as before, then has two laps which go all the way along the Seafront at Lee-on-the-Solent. 

The outward leg is mainly run on cycle-paths and pavement, the return leg goes along the Esplanade. The course is flat save for three short ramps along the Esplanade.

At the far end of the Seafront it may be necessary to join the carriageway for a short distance. Care should be taken whilst joining the carriageway.

We are making changes to the chip collection procedure. This year both running numbers AND chips will be collected on race day, we will be sending out race information by e-mail and not by post, race information will also be posted on this website. Additionally we hope to have a collection point for local runners on the Saturday before the race.

We still accept postal entries but please make sure you have included a valid e-mail address on the form. If you are unable to provide an e-mail address for future communication please enclose an A5 self-addressed envelope.

We still have a few 2013 T-shirts left which can be purchased from our sponsor Absolute Running
