Great South Run underway: Twenty thousand taking part.

The thirtieth Great South Run is underway in Portsmouth, with twenty thousand runners taking part.

Conditions are near perfect for the race, which sees runners starting from South Parade before heading along Clarence Esplanade.

From there they head towards the historic dockyard and HM Naval Base, before turning east and running past Victoria Park.

They then head along the other side of Southsea Common – where they will see the finish line despite only being about half way through.

By the seven-mile point they will reach Eastney and and weave through residential streets, before the final mile back along the seafront.

To mark the thirtieth anniversary of the event, eighties celebrities Timmy Mallet and Jet from Gladiators are starting the race.
