We’re sorry to say that along with a number of events, The Great North Run has had to be cancelled due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. We know that it’s especially frustrating if you’ve been training hard or looking forward to your fundraising event.

We’re as gutted as you are that it won’t be able to go ahead, but we want you to know that we’ll still be on hand to support you through your fundraising journey, so that even during this uncertain time, your super efforts won’t go to waste. 

You can read more from the organisers here.
