In just a few months’ time we’ll be doing what do best and putting on amazing events through the streets of Great Run cities across the UK. We couldn’t be more excited to see you back on a (real) start line, where you belong!
The outlook for the Great Run Series 2021 is looking positive. To keep runners safe there will be covid secure measures in place, but the thrill of running through your city’s streets and the unbeatable feeling of crossing the finish line, will be even more special this year.
