Entries are now open for next year’s Great South 5k, junior and mini runs.

The events will take place in Portsmouth on Saturday October 19 next year, a day before the Great South Run 2019.

Last year more than 1,000 children aged between three and 15 took on the mini and junior runs, which start and finish near the Blue Reef Aquarium and include a 1.5 kilometre or 2.5 kilometre route.

The 5k is aimed at those who want to tackle a shorter running route across a faster course than the 10 mile run.

Up to 25,000 people are expected to take part in the Great South Run, which will be held on Sunday October 20.
