Great North Run Solo

The iconic Great North Run has been reimagined with a virtual twist, will you join Team St Ann's and run the half marathon from anywhere you want?

June 28, 2020 - September 13, 2020

Join Team St Ann’s in the Great North Run Solo, a virtual adaption of the iconic half marathon. You will have 78 days to complete the 13.1 mile journey from anywhere you want, starting from Sunday 28th June to Sunday 13th September.

This year, the challenge has changed with runners now being asked to complete a minimum of 40 runs over the 78 day period to celebrate what would have been the 40th Great North Run. Once you have completed the challenge you’ll receive a special edition Great North Run Solo medal.

Location: Anywhere you want
