Gosport Road Runners would like to thank Solent Sports Injury Clinic of Lee-on-the-Solent for their support of our race.

An increase in fees levied by the M.O.D. means we are having to raise our charge for parking at Browndown to £2 per car this year. However this is still very good value compared to the Public Car Parks in the area.

Full race information will be sent by e-mail and not by post, race information will also be posted on this website shortly. We will again have a number collection point for local runners on the Saturday before the race.

Children's Fun Run

Whilst the main event is underway, a ‘Fun Run’ will take place. This is a non-competitive run for children of age 11 and under.

The Fun Run takes place commencing at 10.20am and covers an approximate distance of 1.2k.

The event is off road starting on a grassed area near to the seafront, through a park and finishing in the school grounds.

If your child wants you to run with them, that is ok. The entry cost is £2.00. Payment and registration for the Fun Run, has to be made on the day of the race.

The entry form can be downloaded here: Fun Run Entry Form



All finishers (adults and children) will receive a medal and Goody Bag. Why not personalise your medal? Visit our medal engraver in the Race HQ.

The wearing of any type of headphones or earphones is not permitted again this year.

In the event of severe weather or unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the race organisers, we reserve the right to cancel the race. If this decision is made, no refund of race entry fee will be made, as most of the costs are incurred before the start of the race.

We really do appreciate runners giving a few minutes of their time after the race to send us their comments. It is invaluable information for the race committee. A good place to post a comment is on the Runner’s World website.

Guidance on how to prepare for an endurance event is available on the www.runnersmedicalresource.com website with regularly updated advice from the runbritain Medical Advisory Group.
