BUPA Great South Run this Sunday 24th October

BUPA Great South Run this Sunday 24th October

I’ve never actually been down to watch the runners, let alone take part, but I understand it’s quite a sight to see 10,000 people running along the seafront. The Bupa Great South Run is notably labeled as Europes leading 10 mile road race and was awarded the coveted IAAF gold label status, becoming the first 10 miler in the world to be given the accolade for its exceptional standards of organisation and world class elite fields. Pretty impressive

If like me the thought of running makes your legs cry then you can watch it live on Channel 5 this Sunday 25th October at 10.30am.

Good luck to everyone who is taking part. Think like Linford and make sure to stretch before and after. Like I know what I’m talking about…

    I love watching this on TV, a bit lame considering that it’s going on just down the road but for me there is always something curiously fascinating about watching something near on live TV. Like a game at Fratton park, watching it on TV but being able to hear the cheers from the park itself.

    Shameless charity plug!

    First time this year, normally don’t even run for a bus. I find it undignified….

    As most of you are aware am much more of a bicycle person myself! Thought i would give it a shot though, all proceeds go to the Alzheimers Society.

    Everybody come down and see a skinny Albert Road regular / strong islander struggle for charity!

    Cheers, Charlie.
