Great North Run Solo

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 here:

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
