Sports Coach Heroes

With activities and team sports cancelled, keeping kids active became even harder during the pandemic. As part of the Great North THANK YOU campaign, we’re looking for inspirational coaches that did what they could to keep children engaged in sport.

The winner will be chosen by a panel from three finalists, and be celebrated through a large-scale visual installation along the course at this year’s Great North Run.

The deadline for nominations (Friday 13th August at 5pm) has now passed.
