We are closely monitoring the developments with COVID-19 and will continue to take the advice of the UK government around the staging of large public events. 

At present it is highly likely that there will be disruption to the Great North Family Run. However, we want to wait a short period to confirm what happens next. We’re working out some details around the events, and we will make further announcements very soon.

We understand the commitment and dedication you make when you enter one of our events and we would not take any decision to cancel or postpone lightly. We love delivering our events and we work hard to make sure our participants can enjoy them in a safe and happy environment. 

In the meantime we want to reassure you all that we are keeping in close contact with Public Health England. If circumstances dictate that we must cancel any of our events everyone who had entered would be entitled to a refund.
