Are you taking part in the Great South Run for charity next weekend?

If so, we would love to hear from you! We are hoping to feature charity runners from the Isle of Wight online and in the newspaper.

The Great South Run is one of the south coast’s biggest and best running events and it takes place in Portsmouth over a fast and flat ten-mile route next Sunday (October 17).

The event is famous for its buzzing atmosphere, iconic music and entertainment zones, and a route which takes runners past HMS Victory, Portsmouth’s historic dockyard and the glorious seafront finish.

If you are running for charity, simply click on the submissions box below to send us more details – including your fundraising page and a picture of you in training.
