Two willing volunteers, including Ruth Stanton-Saringer, a former World Land Trust (WLT) intern and Communications Officer, ran the Great South Run on 27 October 2013 in aid of WLT.
The weather on race day in Portsmouth was bright, sunny and breezy along the seafront. The atmosphere was as good as it always is, with what seemed like the whole town turning out to support the runners. Cheering crowds and live bands along the route - samba, brass and jazz - all helped make it a great day.
First held in 1990, the Great South Run is Europe’s most popular 10 mile race. The scenic route weaves through Portsmouth’s historic dockyard and then back along the sea front.
