2020 was set to see the Great North Run celebrate its 40th anniversary. Around 57,000 runners take part in the event this year but the pandemic has caused havoc in the world of organised running events. .

The cancellation of the Great North Run is having a devastating effect on charities like us – and at #TeamLC, we need you more than ever. 

While the event in the North East can’t go ahead as planned, the GNR has gone virtual. Take on the 13.1 mile running challenge along with thousands across the UK.

GNR Virtual is completely free to enter and open to everyone, regardless of whether they had a place in this year’s race or not. You’ll get free access to the race app so that you can enjoy the official Great North Run experience (including the sounds you would’ve heard on the route!)

Sign up to the virtual GNR and raise £100 and we will send you a branded Leukaemia Care running vest
