The newly launched official virtual Great North Run will take place on Sunday 13 September

It promises to be an immersive and atmospheric experience, capturing everything you love about the big day. The team have created an innovative virtual event with audio clips so that participants hear the sounds of the Great North Run, providing as close an experience as possible to the real deal.

All virtual Great North Runners will start at the same time and complete the same 13.1 mile distance and will be able to view results after the race has finished. They promise to recreate the unique atmosphere as much as possible, giving you all an alternative way to support St Oswald’s in what has been a very challenging year.
