Time is running out for your chance to apply for the Morrison’s Great South Run which celebrates 25 years in Portsmouth.

Your chance to enter Europe’s premier 10-mile event will close at 10am on Tuesday, October 13.

Thousands have already vowed to take on the picturesque course but if you’re not one of them, there’s still time to prepare.

David Hart at the Great Run Company said: ‘The Morrisons Great South Run is a famously flat course so it is ideal for people who have perhaps left it a bit later than others to sign up.

‘Set your goal according to your current level of fitness, and remember that not everyone runs – thousands of people jog and walk the 10 miles.

‘The course is filled with iconic landmarks, bands on the run, boost zones and thousands of spectators cheering you on, so the most important thing to remember is to go at your own pace and soak up the incredible atmosphere on the day.’

The weekend of events also includes a 5k race and children’s junior and mini runs, which all take place on Saturday, October 24.
