What is Simplyhealth Great Run Day?

Great Run and Simplyhealth used the power of the Simplyhealth Great North Run to inspire people to be part of the UK’s most active weekend. The Simplyhealth Great Run Day was a celebration of movement and was about more than just running.
Its aim was to inspire people to get active in any way they wished, with activities such as walking, wheeling, climbing steps, hiking and yoga being logged on the Simplyhealth Great Run Day web hub.


Great Run Day is a key part of Simplyhealth’s #millionsmoving campaign.

Simplyhealth want to inspire individuals, families and communities to simply move. This is close to Simplyhealth’s belief that movement is the cornerstone to health.

The #millionsmoving campaign encourages any form of activity – the more we move the happier we are.
