It says I am too old? Do I need to register the child with their own account?
Don't use your own Great Run login details. You will need to create an account for the child taking part in the event (with their name and date of birth). On their account you will be able to enter your contact information including your email address.
I can't remember my child’s login/password
If your child has taken part in the event before and you know their username you can click here
to reset their password. The password reset link will be sent to the email address on their account.
Please note, if you have any issues with the login, just click on the link on the left hand side of the login page to register them as a new user.
Can I enter more than one child at a time?
If the children are in the same event category (for example, if they are all Junior boys aged 9-10yrs) you can use the group entry facility to register and pay for more than one child at a time. Groups are limited to 4 entries at one time.
If the children are in different age categories you will be able to complete the entry for one child, click to logout and choose the entry link to complete the entry for the second child. You won't need to queue again.
You will need to register one of the children with an account on the website in their name/date of birth (or login with their original login if they have taken part before) and complete the entry form for that child. Then before you get to the payment stage there will be the option of adding more entries.
Can I run with my child on the day?
Yes, you can if your child is a Mini or a Junior (aged 9-12 yrs). There will be a question on the entry form for the Mini Great North Run and the Junior Great North Run that asks if you would like to accompany them during the run on the day. You don’t to have register your details or pay extra to do so. If your child is aged 13-16 yrs they will not have the option to be accompanied by an adult, unless there is a special requirement that necessitates adult accompaniment. If there is, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
after you have secured the entry.
