Looking for a place for Great South Run 2012?

Hello runners

I have finally returned from a two-year injury hell and am desperate to run in the 2012 Great South Run. If you have a place but cannot run because you are injured or have other commitments then please do let me know. I am happy to pay £40. Hope to hear from someone soon.




  • You can still get charity places for the GSR. Or else, the GBR the week before is still open.

  • The original poster was happy to pay 40 which is fair.

    240 sounds a bit steep.
  • I have a place, if you are still looking...

  • Thanks Anna and Emma - I now have a charity place through work so will be there for the big day. Are you both injured?


  • I'm not, it just unfortunately looks like a complete mission to get there from London by train. Am starting a new job the next day, and would like to get back reasonably early; so the option of sitting on a coach in the traffic isn't appealing either. Gutted, it's a lovely run. If there's anyone with any other travel suggestions I'd be interested to hear them.

  • Tell me about it, I have to go via London to travel back to East Grinstead in West Sussex. The things I'll do for charity. 

  • I'd like a place if any are still going?  I'd struggle to do the charity thing this time around.... image

    @Anna - Have you thought about driving? As long as you're there relatively early - the traffic jams arent too bad. We parked at the shopping centre rather than on the seafront and it worked out really well for traffic jams.

    What's wrong with the train? From Victoria/Waterloo you should have direct connections?

  • I don't drive, Emmy.
    Have done every possible combination on the Trainline.com.

    If I leave central London at 5:47; go to Brighton, change, change and change again I can be in Portsmouth about 9:50. That's the only option that gets me in before the run starts. Bonkers!!!

  • @ Anna - you could stay in a hotel in Godalming or Haslemere then catch the train to Portsmouth on Sunday morning. However, you're still left with the journey back to London after the race.
