Calling all students and staff of the University of Portsmouth.

This year, for the first time, the Great Run group are offering all students and staff from the University of Portsmouth discounted entry prices to the Great South Run.

The Great South Run will host events over two days (Saturday 21 October  –  Sunday 22 October) with a 5K race taking place on the Saturday and the worlds leading 10 mile event ‘The Great South Run’ taking place on the Sunday.

  1. Shame this was announced earlier as I have already booked a place and paid full price. Will this be available next year?

    • Hi Ian,

      Nothing has been decided yet for next year but keep a look out for any other information regarding the Great South Run.

  2. Same comment as Ian Piper. Annoyingly I only entered a couple of weeks ago and paid full-price!

    • Unfortunately, due to the race being so close, processing refunds will not be possible but we have been informed to prevent this issue happening in the future discounted ticket prices will be offered a year in advance.

  3. How long does this process take, I have paid and received confirmation but have not heard anything for 5 days!

    • Hi Chris,

      The Students’ Union are currently in the process of sending out the running packs so hopefully you will receive yours soon.
