Twenty-five thousand runners will be pounding the streets of Portsmouth and Southsea today for the Great South Run. Big crowds are expected to cheer on those taking part.
The 10 mile route takes in the sites of Portsmouth Cathedral, the Spinnaker Tower and HMS Victory.
The final stretch along the sea front has given thousands of people the opportunity to get a personal best time for many years. Every year the event attracts athletes, celebrities and runners raising money for good causes, with over £30 million having been raised for charity over the years.
The Great South Run has enjoyed it's biggest turn-out yet.
This year a record-breaking 25,000 runners from across the South, took part in the 10 mile race through the streets of Portsmouth.
Some ran for charity, others for a personal challenge. One man even ran with a fridge on his back. Juliette Fletcher has more.
GB's Jo Pavey has regained the title she won six years ago at the Great South Run.
It was only the second 10-mile race of Pavey’s career, but it came following a superb track season in which she won European 10,000m silver and finished seventh in both the 5000m and 10,000m at the London Olympics.
Stephen Mokoka (RSA) took the men’s title in a time of 46:40 while Jo Pavey (GBR) took the women’s title in a time of 53:01.
Around 30,000 runners took part in the Bupa Great South Run 5k, Bupa Junior & Mini Great South Run and the Bupa Great South Run on 27 and 28 October - which all saw record entrants in 2012.
One of the greatest names in British athletics’ history, Dame Kelly Holmes, was the honorary starter for the Bupa Great South Run today.
The Great South Run takes place today with the largest number of entrants ever including Tony the Fridge. Yes a man who runs with a fridge on his back!
Dame Kelly Holmes will start the race.
