Great North Run: Sunday 12th September

Home / Great North Run: Sunday 12th September

Join the GNR 40th Anniversary Run on 12th September 2021

The Great North Run should have celebrated its 40th birthday in 2020, but the impact of Covid-19 put their celebrations on hold.

They are now looking forward to marking that monumental milestone this September instead, while doing everything they can to keep their runners safe in these unprecedented times.

Be a part of something incredible!

If you would like to run for #TeamFOP then get in touch.

Places cost £25 including an ‘FOP Friends of’ t-shirt.  All we ask is you try to raise a minimum of £300 to help us with our race to find a treatment and a cure for FOP.

COVID-19 Event Information: a message from the GNR organisers…

“We’re all dealing with some unexpected challenges to the way we live at the moment but we’re still working hard to bring you a brilliant event. We’re pulling out all the stops to make it a fantastic day, while doing everything we can to keep you safe. 

We understand that there may be uncertainty over what is and isn’t going to be possible this year, but we want to give you the confidence to book your place knowing exactly what will happen if we cant deliver the event as planned or if you are personally affected by the pandemic.”
