Victory 5 Mile
03 December 2017
The continued work on the Portsmouth sea defences prohibits the use of a section of the normal course and an alternative route from the Mountbatten Centre to avoid the closed section has been rejected by the local authority. It has therefore been necessary to establish a new course and this will be based at LAKESIDE NORTH HARBOUR, Western Road Cosham. Full details will be e mailed to entrants.
