This is a very friendly, fun event and the runner's push each other to the finish line. There is no last place in this event. Another epic thing about this event is the legendary finisher medal you get at the end.

Who are Rural Running Events?

Rural Running Limited, formed in October 2016, is a small, family business, run by me, Jeff Clark, my wife Michelle, and Laura Clark, who has recently joined us.

As a recent convert to running, and having formerly been reluctant to run a bath, let alone a marathon, I think I know what the average runner wants from an event.

As a company, we are committed to support both local, and national charities, making significant donations from the proceeds from every one of our races.

Who is this run for?
If you are looking for a race where you can hide among 1000’s of other competitors, with bells and whistles, then this site is not for you!

Our runs are all fairly small, and are aimed at all abilities. However, our runs are also planned with the serious runner in mind.

Are strollers allowed?

Yes they are

    Can 15 year olds run this event?

    Hey there, just to let you know that if they are 15 they must be accompanied by an adult for the 10k and 5k. However you must be over 16 to enter the half marathon. All the best!

    Hi I have only just started the couch to 5k program and I'm looking to commit myself to a 5k to ensure I stick to it but I am overweight is this an appropriate run for all abilities? Or can you reccomend any that are close(ish) to Portsmouth. Thank you
