Gosport Road Runners invite you to take part in the 33rd Gosport Half Marathon.

The race takes place on Sunday 18th November 2018 commencing at 10am. The venue is Bay House School, 18 Gomer Lane, Alverstoke, Gosport, Hampshire PO12 2QP. There is chip timing. There are Age Category and Team prizes.

The course introduced in 2014 will be used again although there may be slight adjustments made. The route starts and finishes at Browndown Rd, then has two laps which go all the way along the Seafront at Lee-on-the-Solent.

The outward leg is mainly run on cycle-paths and pavement, the return leg goes along the Esplanade. The course is flat save for two short ramps along the Esplanade.

The combined running number and chip will be collected on race day. Full race information will be sent by e-mail and not by post, race information will also be posted on this website. Additionally, we may again have a number collection point for local runners on the Saturday before the race.


Closing date for postal and on-line entries is up to and including 11th November or earlier if the race limit of 2000 is reached. Last year the entry list was closed by the end of October.

Entrants who are 17 years of age will require permission of parent/guardian to enter and must contact the on-line race administrator at time of entry (info@gosporthalf.org).

Children’s Fun Run

Whilst the main event is underway, a ‘Fun Run’ will take place. This is a non-competitive run for children aged 11 or under.

The Fun Run takes place commencing at 10.20am and covers an approximate distance of 1.2k. The event is off road starting on a grassed area near to the seafront, through a park and finishing in the school grounds. If your child wants you to run with them, that is ok. The entry cost is £2.00. Payment and registration for the Fun Run, has to be made on the day of the race.

The entry form can be downloaded at the link below:

Fun Run Entry Form 2018


All finishers (adults and children) will receive a medal and Goodie Bag.

The use of non-essential earphones and similar devices is not permitted whilst running. This includes Bone Conducting headphones.

Please do not risk running if you are unwell.

In the event of severe weather or unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of the race organisers, we reserve the right to cancel the race. If this decision is made, no refund of race entry fee will be made, as most of the costs are incurred before the start of the race.

We really do appreciate runners giving a few minutes of their time after the race to send us their comments. It is invaluable information for the race committee. A good place to post a comment is on our Race Facebook page.
