A message from Great Run Local

Due to the continued uncertainty of running in events and groups, all Great Run Local events are permanently suspended and the Great Run Local website is no longer active.

We are truly sorry to bring this popular series to a close.

We want to thank everyone who has been involved in Great Run Local over the years. The events wouldn’t have been possible without the thousands of amazing runners, enthusiastic volunteers and dedicated coordinators.

The end of Great Run Local does not mean the end of Great Run’s relationship and commitment to local running. We are currently working on some new event concepts for runners in their local area that we will be launching in the very near future.

To stay updated on future Great Run events you can sign up to receive email updates.
