Great North Run Reimagined 2020

Great North Run Reimagined is a free to enter virtual running campaign, created to provide you with a Great North Run experience to remember. Thinking outside the box the organisers have recreated an experience as close as possible to the real event.


From your training and preparation, right down to a virtual race experience, they have put the framework in place so that you can still Be Your Greatest. It won’t be as good as the real thing, but they hope it will be an opportunity for us to celebrate all that is great about the event and the people who make it even greater.


Great North Run Reimagined includes Great North Run Solo and the ‘Official’ Virtual Great North Run, with more features to be revealed over the coming weeks.


The Great North Run is an important day in the calendar for the North East, competitors, spectators & many others, but in particular for charities. Through your blood, sweat and tears over £25m is raised for charity each year. With your help and through the GNR Reimagined campaign, we’re hoping to still raise a significant fundraising total.


At Adoption Matters we didn’t have actual places in this event this year but the virtual event means that we can now be a part of this amazing experience!!


Entries open on 3rd August
