Final month I used to be fortunate sufficient to participate within the grand finale of this yr’s Nice Run sequence, the Simplyhealth Nice South Run in Portsmouth, one of many world’s main 10-mile working occasions.

Because the runner (and I take advantage of that time period loosely) of the High Santé crew, I’ve attended just a few occasions in my time, however I can truthfully say that this was one in all my favourites! It was such a well-organised and pleasant occasion, with a lot assist across the route.

The course was quick and flat and completed alongside Southsea sea entrance and included a run by means of Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, house to HMS Victory and the Mary Rose Museum. The final two miles of the 10-mile stretch may need been the hardest (and windiest), however they have been definitely probably the most stunning and the views actually saved me going!

Getting right down to Portsmouth was a good outdated trek from the place I’m based mostly in Cambridgeshire, however it was completely definitely worth the journey – I went house with an enormous smile on my face and I’m eagerly planning one other outing to one of many Simplyhealth Nice Runs subsequent yr.

There are distances to swimsuit most talents (from one mile to a half marathon) and totally different teams within the longer races, so you’ll be able to run with folks of an identical capacity to you.
