The ‘Official’ Virtual Great North Run

This year is different. We won’t be on the start line, we aren’t waiting for you at the finish, you won’t have thousands cheering you on… But you can still Be Your Greatest!

The ‘Official’ Virtual Great North Run will be a unique virtual half marathon race experience on the weekend that would have been Great North Run weekend. The event is free to participate in and is open for all runners, whether they had a Great North Run place or not. Entries open on Monday 3rd August so mark the date in your diary, come back to sign up and join us on the start line!

We’re encouraging all runners who take part to run in aid of Heart Heroes and encourage your friends, family and wider supporter network to rally behind you as you embark on your virtual Great North Run experience.

This year is different, but you can still Be Your Greatest 💪!

#GNRReimagined is our virtual running campaign, created to provide you with a Great North Run experience to remember.
