This year’s Great South Run certainly lived up to the hype as 20,000 runners took on the 10-mile course around Portsmouth.
The sun shone for the 29th edition of the run, which was won by Chris Thompson and Eilish McColgan.
But for the most of the runners the day was about personal achievement, getting fit and raising money for charity.
Our photographers Sarah Standing and Chris Moorhouse were out and about to capture the best action from the day.

The 30th Great South Run will take place on Sunday October 20 2019, and the first 1,000 people to sign up can get a 25 per cent discount on entry.
Jayne Fearn, from event sponsors Simplyhealth, said: ‘The glorious sunshine made for great conditions for a fantastic weekend of events.’
‘Supporting runners every step of the way, thousands enjoyed our post-run stretch zone and free massage. We’re already looking forward to next year.’
