THE OFFICIAL VIRTUAL GREAT NORTH RUN
This year is different. You won’t be on the start line and you won’t have thousands cheering you on…But you can still Be Your Greatest! The Official Great North Run is on for 13th September and you can join in for Alder Hey.

With our partners ViRACE, we are creating an app to bring you an innovative virtual experience with audio clips from the event so that you will hear the sounds of the Great North Run. From an upbeat warm-up led by the legendary Roy Gayle, to chants of OGGY OGGY OGGY, and the iconic roar of the Red Arrows fly-past, we are making it feel as much like the real event as we can! We will mimic a race format so that all runners start their Virtual Great North Run at the same time and complete the same 13.1 mile distance. Runners will be tracked throughout the virtual race and will be able to view results after the race has finished.
You can run any route that you like, but you must follow all local regulations with regard to rights of way, traffic, hazards, etc. We politely request that you DON’T try to run the actual GNR route. The actual Great North Run takes place on closed roads, most of which are not accessible to pedestrians at any other time of the year.
