Join our team and change the future of Diabetes today!

This year the Great South Run in Portsmouth will see the return of thousands of people taking on a 10 mile (16 kilometre) course following its cancellation in 2020 due to the pandemic. Run through Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, pass the iconic Spinnaker Tower and finish with beautiful views of the Isle of Wight as you circle back along Southsea Beach.

Grab your running shoes and join the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation team for this year’s Great South Run. Clarence Esplanade in Southsea is transformed into a sea of colour this October, as thousands of runners don their charity vests and running kit.

The Great South Run is now the only 10-mile running event in the world to have achieved IAAF Gold Label status. Previous athletes who have enjoyed this special challenge include Sonia O’Sullivan, Paula Radcliffe MBE and Sir Mo Farah.
