Run numbers, timetables, the unveiling of Tyney the Tortoise, a fantastic atmosphere, a brand new event village, food and drinks stalls, and of course, the medals and goody bags. We are aware that some of our runners will have been lucky enough to have had a Birthday since the original date. All runners will take part in the wave that they were originally scheduled to run in, using the original race number.
Great Run really hope you're able to join them for what will be a fantastic celebration of the next generation of runners.

Mini runners (age 3 – 8) must be accompanied by an adult around the 1.1k course. Junior runners (age 9-16) have the option of running by themselves or with a Parent/Guardian around the 4k course. Accompanying adults who are running are required to wear the specific accompanying adult bib, which is attached to the child’s run number.
To ensure the allocation of places in the Mini and Junior Great North Run is as fair as possible there is a limit of 4 entries per age category and a limit of 6 entries in total, for each entry transaction.
