A Real Achievement - Finish the Virtual Great North Run An Old Friend and a New Challenge For those of you with many charity runs under your belt, the Great North Run will be one of the classics. But this year there's a predictable twist - like many things in 2020 - it's going virtual. Not entirely virtual though, you still need to physically run outdoors at the same time as all the other runners - but you do it wherever you are, connected to other participants and supporters via the event app. This is super for safety, and great for new opportunities too, such as: It's now open to anybody You can take part anywhere you want It's free to enter You can use the app and stay connected to the community Or enjoy the isolation and just pretend you're in the lead? Some things of course remain the same: The distance The date The sweat, the challenge, the glory The chance to run for Brain Injury Survivors The chance to run for Rehabilitation and Hope The chance to run for BASIC So head over to the official site to get all the details for how The Great North Run works in a virtual world. And let us know if you'd like your Great North Run to be on BASIC's road for a better life after Brain and Spinal Injury. Booking for this event has now closed.
