We're supporting the Great North Run Solo, a virtual running
challenge set up following the cancellation of the Great North Run
to keep people moving and motivated.
To complete the challenge and claim a special edition Great
North Run Solo medal, runners need to complete a minimum 40 runs of
any distance over 78 days, a run for each year of the Great North
Run! The challenge starts on Sunday 28 June (the birthday of
the Great North Run) and finishes on 13 September (the day the 40th
Great North Run was scheduled to take place). For younger runners,
there is a junior challenge available.
The challenge costs £10 to join with all profits going to the
NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal.
We encourage you to join the challenge - find out more
