Grizzly, Stinger, Terminator, Stickler, the Combe Gibbet, Pompey Plod and the Rough'n'Tumble. Just some of the rather silly names given to just some off-road multi-terrain races.

These running events are great fun with lots friendly encouragement and a real spirit of 'in-it-together' and ‘us-against-the-course’. In addition to all that great scenery, running on the soft ground may also strengthen core muscles and varying the terrain can be helpful in avoiding injuries.

On this part of the site we’re going to list races of which our locality bounds – from traditional hilly off-roaders like the Portsmouth Plod, a firm club favourite, to ultra all-night races like the Endure 24, a relatively new event but one that for some has a become the running highlight of the year. There will be something for everyone and a real mix of distances – relays, fell and trail runs, off-road marathons and ultra races.
