Be part of Simplyhealth Great Run Day

By Great Run Team

Research by Strava, the social network for runners and cyclists, revealed that the day of last year’s Great North Run was the most active day of the year on its platform.

So this year we'd like to encourage even more people to get active during this year's Simplyhealth Great North Run weekend on Saturday 9 September & Sunday 10 September.

Wherever you are in the UK you can be involved in Great Run Day, but why not celebrate the day at your nearest Great Run Local? All you need to do is come along and run as usual during the weekend of the 9 & 10 September, then log your movements via Strava, or on the Great Run Day webpage. You could also be one of twenty people to win £200 worth of sports vouchers!

So spead the word to your family and friends and bring them along to Great Run Local and let's get #millionsmoving on Great Run Day and break some Great Run Local record attendances!
