Run to support the 10 million people with arthritis in the UK

Take part in the official Great North Run

The 2020 Great North Run will not be happening this year - but you can take part in the official virtual race instead! It's free and open to everyone so why not ask your family and friends to join you? Simply follow the instructions set out in the yellow buttons below to sign up.

This unique virtual event will mimic the usual race day format. All runners will start at the same time on the same day and complete the 13.1 miles in their local area. Audio clips from the roar of the crowds to the Red Arrows fly-by will accompany you throughout your chosen route.  


When: Sunday 13th September 2020

Where: A local route of your choice

Cost: Free, with the option to pay for a finisher's medal and t-shirt

There is no fundraising target, but every pound you raise will fund life-changing research and services. 

We can't be there with you on the day, but your support means you can be there for people living with arthritis.
