Junior & Mini Great North Run

The Run

The World’s biggest and best kids running event is back in 2021. The always popular running spectacular on the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside is a must do event for budding athletes everywhere!

Event Info

For three decades we’ve celebrated getting kids of all ages and abilities active at the Junior & Mini Great North Run – now the largest kids single running event in the world. There’s nothing quite like the amazing sight of thousands of happy, smiling, active kids racing around the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside.

Following last years cancellation, we’re excited to be back on Saturday 11th Sept!

For those of you who had places in 2020 we’ll be giving you a priority entry window for 2021 prior to places going on general sale. We are unable to give you a specific date for this at the moment, as we are awaiting further clarity as we progress through the governments roadmap.

We will be in touch with all 2020 entrants by email with more information very soon, and for now you don’t need to do anything further.

The Family Run was the perfect opportunity for Ellie and her little brother to get involved. And have some fun while they raised money for a good cause.

It's a run with such a buzzing atmosphere and I am so glad that the kids were able to be a part of it.

My daughter is such an active girl and she loved taking part. I just knew it was something that she would love to get involved in.
