The Great North Run #Reimagined

The Great North Run is one of the many 2020 events to fall victim to Covid – but we’re calling on our supporters to fundraise via the Virtual Great North Run.

Taking place on the day the run should have taken place, Sunday 13th September, the virtual event asks runners to complete the 13.1 miles without heading for Gateshead.

In fact, we’d love you to run, or walk, as far as you can, just as long as you raise funds for the
Philanthropic Foundation.

Anyone can register from 3rd August for free via You’ll then be sent a link for a free app. Features include a sound file when you would have been running over the Tyne Bridge of the Red Arrows flying overhead and cheering towards the end of your run!

For those agreeing to support our cause, the Foundation will provide a branded t-shirt or running vest and link to set up a Just Giving page plus paper sponsor forms if required.
