Take part in the Great South Run

Diabetes UK is asking you to put on your running shoes and take part in the Great South Run to help people with diabetes. The ten mile challenge takes place in Portsmouth on Sunday 26 October.

Fast becoming Europe’s premiere ten mile running event, the Bupa Great South Run attracted 18,500 entrants last year. The course weaves around beautiful Portsmouth, taking in stunning scenery and historic landmarks.

General entries for the race are now closed, but we have guaranteed charity places available. Be quick though - the deadline for applications is Friday 22 August.

Support our vital work

“A challenge like the Great South Run takes hard work and dedication, but you will make a real difference to people living with diabetes. The funds you raise will support our vital work - funding research, campaigning and helping people live with diabetes. Contact us now to get involved in this special event,” said Penny January, Regional Fundraising Manager for Diabetes UK South East.

There is a £35 entry fee and Diabetes UK asks that each runner raises a minimum of £250. For more details call Penny January on 01372 720148 or
