The official virtual Great North Run will take place on Sunday 13 September 2020.
Great Run are working in partnership with app provider ViRACE to create an innovative virtual experience with audio clips so that you hear the sounds of the Great North Run, providing as close an experience as possible to the real event.
They will mimic a race format so that you start your virtual Great North Run at the same time as all runners and complete the same 13.1 mile distance. You will be tracked throughout the virtual race and will be able to view results after the race has finished.
GNR Virtual is available to enter free of charge and open to everyone, regardless of whether you had a place in this year’s Great North Run.
How will it work?
More information about the app functionality and experience will be provided on the official GNR Reimagined website in the coming weeks so keep checking back for more info.
Although we sadly won’t have the opportunity to see you all as we usually do on Great North Run day, the team at North of England Children’s Cancer Research with be with you in spirit all day.
