Mini & Junior Great North Run 2017

This is always a great day!! A fantastic way for the younger ones (and parents for the mini!) to get involved and raise funds for our unique foundation. A very uplifting and proud day for all parents and children to be a part of.

Junior & Mini Great North Run 2017!

4K Junior Run (9-16 Years) NOW FULL 
1.5K Mini Run (3-8 Years) NOW FULL

Every year 6,000 young runners pound the pavements at the UK’s biggest and most popular children’s running event on the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside.

Budding athletes, school friends and families will run across the famous Great North City Games track as part of their 1.5km and 4km courses, for ages 3-8 and 9-16 years respectively.

All Junior and Mini runners will receive their very own CCF running t-shirt, an official GNR t-shirt, a goodie-filled finisher’s pack and that all-important medal.

If you would like to enter in aid of the Charlie Cookson Foundation and run with Team CCF this year, please join us and email contact@charliecooksonfoundation.co.uk and we will send you one of our CCF registartion forms to fill in in order for us to register your little ones.

CCF will pay the £17 registration fee, and provide you with a CCF running T shirt. Please note that you must pay the £17 back to CCF if you are unable to participate after the fee has been paid.

We are looking at a sponsor target of a minimum of £60 per entrant to help us cover our fee’s and raise funds. Please feel free to set your own target, our aim is to raise as much funds and awareness as possible!

Last year we had 98 incredible children running for Team CCF with such pride and we would love to get that number over the 100 mark this year! Seeing all those ‘TEAM CCF’ running tops last year was such an emotional and very proud moment for us all at CCF.

Fundraise online via our Virgin Money Giving Page, Just Giving page or through using our CCF Sponsor forms which can be collected from our Charlie’s Shop or emailed to you.

Many thanks for your ongoing support!
