The Great North Run 81 Challenge

The challenge is to complete the iconic 13.1 mile distance, virtually – in a location of your choosing, anytime between 26 – 28 June (the birthday weekend of the Great North Run).

You can choose to complete the full distance in one go, or break it up into separate runs. Once you have completed the half marathon, submit your results and you will receive a commemorative GNR81 digital certificate to download.

To ensure everyone can be part of this amazing throwback journey, GNR81 is free to enter.
