Official Virtual Great North Run

13 September 2020


The Great North Run cancellation means we can’t be there to cheer on our runners this year and you won’t be able to run the famous 13.1 mile route, but you can take on the Official Virtual Great North Run instead!

The ‘Official’ Virtual Great North Run will be a unique virtual half marathon race experience on the weekend that would have been Great North Run weekend. The event is free to participate in and is open for all runners, whether they had a Great North Run place or not.

Why run for the British Lung Foundation?

1 in 5 people in the UK have a lung disease.

There is a new diagnosis every minute – so by the time you’ve laced up your trainers, two more people will have received life changing news.

By fundraising for us, you’ll allow our researchers to find new treatments and cures. You’ll enable us to campaign for better policies on lung health. And you’ll help people to get life saving advice from our support services.

We’re so proud to offer this service. But we can’t do it without fantastic fundraisers like you.

If you have any questions about signing up for this event please do not hesitate to contact our Events Team [email protected].

Please note that this event is not organised by British Lung Foundation.
