Portsmouth Football Club are partnering with the Great South Run to produce a special 'Blue Wave' for Pompey fans to run.

If you are a Blues supporter and plan to take part in this year's event, then this is the perfect option for you.

Taking part in this wave means you will receive a number on a Pompey-branded bib, a timing chip for accurate results, an exclusive t-shirt, medal, goodie-filled finishers' pack and a training pack.

There are four races taking place across the Great South Run weekend – and all will include 'Blue Wave'.

Date Event Distance Ages Price
