PLACES are still available to take part in the Great South Run in aid of a brain and spine disorder charity.

The Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus has around 30 places for runners interested in taking part in a fundraising challenge.

The charity supports sufferers of spina bifida – a spine defect caused at birth – and hydrocephalus, which is the swelling of the brain due to fluid build-up.

The Great South Run – which takes place in Southsea on October 30 – is closed for entries from the general public.

Ian Morley, fundraising assistant for ASBAH, said: ‘The run is always an exciting race, with a lively carnival atmosphere, as experienced runners participate alongside fun runners for a great cause.’

Runners pay a £25 registration fee and should raise more than £100. To find out more visit
