The Official Virtual Great North Run

The iconic event has gone virtual, with a unique half marathon challenge. Will you run on behalf of Team St Ann's?

September 13, 2020

Be apart of Team St Ann’s by signing up to the Official Virtual Great North Run on Sunday 13th September. This is the second virtual event that will replace the Great North Run and will challenge you to complete a half marathon of 13.1 miles on the day the event should have happened.

This year would have been the 40th anniversary for the Great North Run, but sadly we will not be able to run it together. For the big 4-0, the hosts have devised two challenges, the official virtual one and the Great North Run Solo, which will see runners complete 40 runs, covering 13.1 miles in 78 days. Entries for this event will close on Friday 31st July.

Cost: Free

Location: Anywhere you want
