Great North Run

We’re so lucky to be based in the home of the Worlds Biggest Half-Marathon, The Great North Run, and every year a team of runners take to the course to raise money for Tiny Lives.

Virtual Great North Run 2020

The Great North Run as we know it may have been cancelled, but you can still take part in a unique GNR experience in 2020 – and raise funds for Tiny Lives!

The Great Run company have developed a ‘Virtual Great North Run’, meaning that more people than ever can take part. It may not be exactly the real thing, but you can still complete an amazing personal challenge, enjoy getting fit and raise vital funds to support vulnerable premature and sick babies and their families.

“Great North Run Reimagined is a virtual running campaign, created to provide you with a Great North Run experience to remember. We’re thinking outside the box to recreate an experience as close as possible to the real event.” – The Great Run Company

To get involved you need to download the app for the Run and sign up. You’ll also be prompted to set up a JustGiving page to enable you to fundraise from your run.

Happy Running!

We would also like to say a massive thank you to MTrec who once again have kindly sponsored our running vests and t-shirts.
