iTAB are partnering with the Great Run Company to offer their participants the opportunity to personalise their Simply health Great South Run Finisher Medal with their name and finish time.

The Simply health Great South Run takes place on Sunday 20th October 2019 in the city of Portsmouth and has become one of the world’s leading 10-mile runs. From its inaugural event in 1990, the Great South Run celebrates 30 years of running this year – increasing its runners from 2,000 in the early days, to an expected 20,000 participants this year. This popular event starts and finishes on Clarence Esplanade in Southsea, taking in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Nelson’s HMS Victory and Henry VIII’s infamous Mary Rose – making it a maritime-lovers dream route!

Catherine Foster, Brand and Marketing Director at The Great Run Company said:

“We’re delighted to be continuing our partnership with iTAB. We know our runners are all aiming to be their greatest, working towards their own personal goals and when they smash that target, they want to celebrate and remember their achievement. With this year being the 30th Simply health Great South Run there will be even more reason to mark this special occasion.”As well as the 10-mile Run, this weekend of sport also includes the Simply health Great South 5K and the Simply health Junior and Mini Great South Run for children.If runners didn’t purchase an iTAB during registration, they can order via the Great Run shop, in a few simple steps: or via the Great Run App.The iTAB is a small engraved plate which is secured onto the ribbon with a custom-made buckle. Runners simply collect their medal at the finish line and their iTAB arrives in the mail a few weeks later, laser engraved with their name and finish time.
