Great North Run Reimagined
End Date: Sunday 13 September 2020
The Great North Run cancellation means we can’t all get together to fun the famous 13.1 mile route on 13 September. The event organisers have launched the Great North Run Reimagined, a campaign to ensure runners and charities can still mark the occasion.
Great North Run Reimagined is a virtual running campaign, created to provide you with a Great North Run experience to remember.
The Great North Run Reimagined campaign will feature the Great North Run Solo, sign up today, and the Official Virtual Great North Run, with more features to be revealed over the coming weeks.
