Runners will be able to see the finish line for the first time when they run beside Southsea Common by the mile 5 mark, but they will still have half the run to go before they complete the event. 

There will be two water stations, one just before the four mile mark on Winston Churchill Avenue and the other by mile seven just before heading up Cromwell Road.
