The UK’s biggest and best kids running event is back on Saturday 9 September, giving kids a chance to shine on Great North Run weekend.
Do you have any little ones that would love to get involved with fundraising for Percy Hedley and want to take part in the mini or junior Great North Run? For the first time ever, we have our very own places up for grabs.

Minis aged 3-8 take on a daring 1.2km dash, while Juniors aged 9-16 tackle a 4km supercharged sprint. There’s nothing quite like the amazing sight of thousands of happy, smiling, active kids taking part for fun, for charity, for a challenge and earning a very special medal for their efforts.
Fun For All The Family
The AJ Bell Junior & Mini Great North Run takes place on closed roads around the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside, making it a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants. It’s also wheelchair friendly for all.
You can also get the opportunity to meet Tyney, the official Great Run mascot!
