A FITNESS instructor says he has big plans for next year’s Great South Run after receiving such a positive reaction.

The 10-mile race returned to Southsea for the 27th time on Sunday.

More than 25,000 people took part, including a team of around 20 people from XstreamFitness, run by Bickram Singh, from Southsea.

The 33-year-old personal trainer, who also runs fitness classes across Portsmouth, said: ‘Watching people run was amazing. This is one of the best runs in the south. I’ll definitely be entering a big team again next year. It was good to get involved.’

Nathan Radcliffe, 32, from Southsea, was being spurred on by Bickram. They crossed the line together in 1hr 17mins. Nathan said: ‘It was my hardest run yet, but it was great.’
