A recent 5 km run through Queen Elizabeth Forest attracted about 150 entrants. Hosted by local running club the Portsmouth Joggers, the event began at 7.15pm to allow participants time to get home from work.

The club has been established for over 35 years and welcomes runners and joggers of all abilities from all walks of life. They meet at the Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth, every Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm, Saturday at 9am, and out on site on Sundays at locations as detailed on their web-site.

The aim is to provide a safe, encouraging and enjoyable environment in which everyone can meet their personal goals.

Race results can be seen on the club’s web-site at www.pjc.org.uk
