Take part in this very special event to mark the 40th anniversary of the Great North Run on Sunday 13 September 2020.

Replacing the Great North Run, is a Virtual Run on Sunday 13 September – The Great North Run Reimagined.

It promises to be an experience to remember, and the organisers are putting an incredible amount of effort into creating an event that you can be proud to be part of.

The race format will be mimicked, so that you all start your virtual Great North Run at the same time and complete the same 13.1 mile distance. You will be tracked throughout the virtual race by an interactive App and you will then be able to view your result once the race has finished.

Our team of runners who signed up for the original event are getting prepared for race day, and we'd love you to join them.

Sign up for the #GNRReimagined through the main website here.
