'Virtual Great North Run 2020' and 40th Great North Run 2021

Very sadly 'The Great North Run' has been cancelled for September 2020 that many NeST supporters take part in and support our charity year on year. However their is a VIRTUAL RUN FOR 2020! See below.

The 40th Great North Run is now scheduled to take place on 12th September 2021. 2020 ballot runners and members have the option to roll their entry to the next Great North Run, scheduled for 12th September 2021, and will receive an email confirming the next steps. There is nothing to pay and no ballot to enter. Visit their website for further details



The 'Official' Virtual Great North Run
This year is different. We won’t be on the start line, we aren’t waiting for you at the finish, you won’t have thousands cheering you on… But you can still Be Your Greatest!

The ‘Official’ Virtual Great North Run will be a unique 'virtual' half marathon race experience on the weekend 12/13th September 2020 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! Scroll down for more details on

Entries open on Monday 3rd August so mark the date in your diary, come back to sign up and join us on the start line!

This is a great chance for those who would not choose to run a marathon to take part in a virtual one!! So do take up this opportunity and raise vital funds for NeST.

You can encourage your friends, family and wider supporter network to rally behind you as you embark on your virtual Great North Run experience, or encourage others to take part as well.
