Gosport Christmas Golden Mile and 5k routes

Both The Golden Mile and the Junior Golden Mile event begin close to the Inshore Lifeboat Station.

The route covers a measured 1 mile route finishing a mile away from the start, close to The Bayside Cabin Café. The course is pancake flat and offers runners an excellent opportunity to record a PB.

Why not challenge yourself further by taking part in the The Gosport 5k which follows The Golden Mile.

The 5k will begin near the Bayside Cabin Café. From there runners will cover an out and back route along the promenade and onto a country path around Fort Gilkicker.

The majority of the route is on concrete paths apart from a few metres on a shingle pathway.

    Did the event in 2019

    Love running in Gosport but didn’t much like running on the shingle around Gilkicker. Gosport Marshall’s are always absolutely brilliant and along with superb organisation make it a pleasure to run there. First time I have had to contend with spray from waves when running 😄. Thanks for two great races 👍
  • Did the event in 2019

    It was a fun run.. I would ask people to double check where the start line is as I had to run a mile to the start from where we were parked up as I thought it was an out and back run as the Tuesday one was.

    Well organised and great support from the Marshall’s despite the weather. A tad expensive for running both the 1 mile and 5k
  • Did the event in 2019

    Great race as always and the weather held off. The course was good taking in the Gilkicker loop. See you next year.
