**Due to some steep terrain and tight bollards on the Millennium Bridge, any self propelled racing chair participants are invited to join in a different tailor-made course, which starts and finishes at the same point. Please register and pay for your child to enter the Mini or Junior Great North Run (depending on their age) and then let us know that the entrant would like to be part of this race by emailing info@greatrun.org

Great Run Mascot Competition

We’d like to invite our younger customers to demonstrate their creativity and passion for sport, by developing an original design, name and backstory of the future, official Great Run mascot.

The winning design will be turned into the official mascot of the Great Run's series of events and the winner will also receive:

  • A Golden Family Ticket to a 2020 Great Run event of your choice, including our flagship event the Great North Run (based on 2 adults and up to 3 children)
  • Personalised iTAB medal souvenir (only applies to Junior and Senior participants
  • Official Great Run hoodie for all the family
  • Interview with prize winner, presented with framed image of their winning design. To be presented by Great Run Chairman Brendan Foster, at Junior and Mini Great North Run, Saturday 12 September 2020.

The Great Run mascot will make its first appearance in digital form on Sunday 28 June, which just happens to be the Great North Run’s birthday. They will then make their first public appearance at this year’s Junior and Mini Great North Run on Saturday 12 September.

Competition closes 12 noon, Friday 13 March 2020.
