The cancellation of the Great North Run means we can’t all run together, but you can still celebrate by taking part in one of their virtual running challenges instead. With two events to choose from, it's the perfect way to mark the occasion whilst still supporting the charities impacted by the cancellation of this years' event due to COVID-19.
Virtual Great North Run
The Virtual Great North Run will take place on Sunday 13 September, so that you have an official 13.1 mile virtual race to participate in. The aim is to make it as close an experience as possible to the real event, so you'll be inspired to lace up your trainers and complete the distance.
