The organisers of the Portsmouth Coastal half marathon promise a race with a difference. It is a medium sized event with around 1000 runners which raises money for the Portsmouth Royal National Lifeboat Institution. There's also hot soup at the end for everyone!
The first 3 miles are along the prom with excellent views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. The next 4 miles are a mix of off road, grass through Bransbury Park and then shingle. The last 5 miles are along the seafront. Please note that if the tide is in your feet may get a little wet!
