East Side Story Portsmouth

East Side Story Portsmouth

15 June, 2025 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

£25 – £35

New summer event coming on the 15th June 2025

Believe and Achieve Events invite you to join us for a rather special event in the summer of 2025.

The East Side Story Portsmouth.

To celebrate the opening of the soon to be complete coastal path along the flat section of the eastern side of Portsmouth, overlooking the wonderful Langstone Harbour. The fun side is to also acknowledge the many road and footpath closures over the past 8 years and beyond from one source or another, we mention no names. Yes, it could be quicker to run the route than sit in traffic and get in or out of the city. (Fun themed appropriate medal to be rewarded for all distances completed) + a distance magnet to stick on your medal.

This will be a timed event where you choose – from 5km to 10k, half to marathon to 50k ultra +, you can complete as many, or as few, laps as you like of a 5.0km, out and back, course . We welcome all abilities of runner – complete one lap and you’re both a finisher and a winner in our eyes or keep going and see how far you can get in the full 7 hour time limit.
Start time is 8am or up to 10am, so no waiting around if you arrive early and no added pressure if you’re running a bit late.

Not sure? Well the beauty of this format is that you don’t even need to decide in advance – simply come and run a lap and see how you feel on the day and keep on going if it feels right.

Places will be limited so don’t leave it too late to enter.

Minimum distance required is 5k, or keep going for the full 7 hours and see how far you get.

♥ Start and finish location at the Andrew Simpson Centre with full facilities available

♥ Run on the new upgraded coastal path

♥ Sights include, The Peoples Memorial, Frog Lake, Duck Lake, Swan Lake, The Knob, Great Salterns House, Over looking the muddy but magical Langsone Harbour.

♥ The 1st 100 entries will be put into a raffle for some fantastic spot prizes.

Relax after with some free kayaking weather permitting as it is the british summer.
