The Official Virtual Great North Run
Start Time: 10:30:00
This year is different. Runners won't be on the start line, crowds won’t be waiting for you at the finish... But you can still Be Your Greatest.
This year’s Great North Run may have been cancelled, but the event organisers have created an immersive, virtual Great North Run experience allowing you to enjoy the sounds of the iconic event whilst you complete your own half marathon. The Official Virtual Great North Run is FREE to enter and will take place on Sunday 13 September, the day the Great North Run was scheduled to take place.
The virtual event will mimic a race format so that all runners start their Virtual Great North Run at the same time and complete the 13.1 mile distance. Runners will be tracked throughout the virtual race and will be able to view results after the race has finished.
You can run any route that you like, but you must follow all local regulations with regards to rights of way, traffic, hazards etc. During the Virtual Event you can use the event app to enjoy an upbeat warm-up led by the legendary Roy Gayle, to the chants of OGGY OGGY OGGY, and the iconic roar of the Red Arrows fly-past, the organisers are hoping to make it feel as much like the real event as they can.
