The A J Bell Great South Run 14 & 15 October

 Travelling by the Gosport ferry to Portsmouth is a great, stress free way to avoid the road closures and traffic jams.    The crossing is just over 4 minutes long and then it’s only a short walk or jog from the Portsmouth Hard Interchange to the race area at Southsea Common.  There are also plenty of car parks near the Gosport terminal – click here for location details.  To avoid delays we’re operating a second ferry from 08.52 hours until 10.30 hours to cater for the event’s competitors and supporters which means a ferry every 7 ½ minutes.  Then again 13.22 to 15.30 hours for returning runners and spectators.”

The service operates from 05.30 hours until midnight on both days (if you want to get to the race super early or stay super late in Portsmouth after the race).

As well as the ticket machines which take cash and credit cards, the ticket office will be open from 08.00 hours until 16.00 hours.  Better still, save time on the day and buy your ticket in advance from the ticket office or ticket machines.  Click here for ticket office opening hours.
