About The Great NorthSouth R#n


Great North South Run Isle of WightWelcome to the 9th running of this wonderful event which goes from strength to strength.  In fact now it is nearly a guaranteed sell out I am reverting the price this year to just £20.00.

With the realisation that many who see this run advertised think it might be a bit too long for them, I wanted to make it clearer, in this our ninth year, that all levels of endurance are welcome.  Due to the presence throughout, of the Southern Vectis buses and my support team, runners can drop in or out as they wish.   So come on all you novices lets give it a go!! Remember It’s not a race.

For those of you who may wish to make the journey from the Mainland you would be made most welcome.  The Red Funnel Red Jet from Southampton makes this easy, as the start is only about 8 minutes walk away from the terminal and of course you will be coached back to the start, Egypt Point with everyone else after the event!

Warmest regards Rick Pearson

The Great NorthSouth R#n was started by Richard (P-Rick) Pearson in 2012

When I started this event it was my intention to only have it every other year, hence no run in 2013 but a lot of encouragement from a  combination of runners from Ryde Harriers and IOW Road Runners made me change my mind!!

It has become an event for hashers and road runners who just want a day away from PB’s, Racing and raising money for Charity. However, it still gives a really testing challenge and a unique chance to relax and chat to people who just love to run!
