Virtual Great North Run


This year is different. We won’t be on the start line, we aren’t waiting for you at the finish, you won’t have thousands cheering you on… But you can still Be Your Greatest!

#TeamTeesside are you ready to take on GNR Virtual, the official virtual Great North Run and support your local hospice? 

We know lots of you were disappointed with the cancellation of this year's Great North Run, but we've got some good news!

Great North Run have been busy creating an app with a race format so that you can still take part in the race. You'll start your run on Sunday 13th September at the same time as thousands of other runners (virtually) and complete the 13.1 mile distance.

You will be tracked through the virtual race and will be able to view your results after the race has finished. You'll also experience the sounds of the Great North Run as you complete the race... the oggy oggy oggy tunnel? You'll hear it!

So why not complete the miles using your own personal route? If you can - please join in, keep fundraising and support us… a terminal illness doesn’t stop and neither do we.

The GNR Virtual is free to enter and open to everyone, you do not need a place in the cancelled 2020 run to take part.

How do I enter?

Entries are open from 10am on Monday 3rd August. You can enter on the Great North Run website.

Do I have to have a place for this year's cancelled event to take part?

No, the Virtual Great North Run is open to everyone over the age of 17.

Can I fundraise for you?

Yes please! Your support at this time will make such a big difference, we are facing a fundraising shortfall since we have had to postpone our fundraising events. 

During your registration you will be able to select Teesside Hospice as your chosen charity and create your online fundraising page to share with friends and family.

We really appreciate your support, thank you. 

What will I get?

You will get free access to the race app to enjoy the official Great North Run experience. You will be able to download a finishers certificate and can purchase a t-shirt and medal if you would like one. 

Do I have to run on Sunday 13th September?

You don't have to, but we would encourage you to, so you get the full race experience. If you choose to take part on a different day, your results won't show in the final results and leaderboard.
