Information about the Junior and Mini Great North Run 2022 will be released soon.

The Junior and Mini Great North Run event is the UK’s biggest running event for children and continues to grow in popularity each year. Taking place on Saturday 10 September, the day before the main event, the Junior & Mini Great North Run will see thousands of young children from as young as 3 complete the race.

Typically taking place on the Newcastle side of the Quayside, the Junior and Mini Great North Run are two age appropriate events - the Mini and the Junior and will have participants running across the Swing Bridge to the Gateshead side where they will travel adjacent to the river until they reach Gateshead Millennium Bridge. To reach the finish, runners will cross over Gateshead Millennium Bridge back over to the Newcastle side.

Each participant will be allocated a colour and a number will represent which wave they will be setting off in; there are usually four waves which start with an opening assembly and warm-up at the beginning of each wave.

For many children taking part in the Mini Great North Run it will be their first experience of mass participation running which is why all Mini run numbers will include an ‘accompanying adult’ bib to ensure that parents and guardians are allowed to take the children around the course.

At the end of the race, all Mini Great North Run participants will receive a t-shirt, a finishers pack filled with lots of goodies and a shiny medal!
