The Great North Run, one of the biggest fundraising events of the year, was due to take place on Sunday September 13.

It has now been rescheduled to Sunday September 12, 2021.

The event helps raise thousands of pounds each year for Saint Catherine’s – and in total raises £25m for charity.

Any participants who have a charity place in aid of Saint Catherine’s will be contacted, by either telephone or email, by a member of the hospice’s fundraising team to explain what happens next.

Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager, said: “We know that our supporters have been training hard and really looking forward to the Great North Run.

“However, the safety and wellbeing of everyone must come first and we hope that our runners will be able to take part in 2021 and continue their valued fundraising for Saint Catherine’s.”

Anyone with any questions about their place in the meantime is asked to email [email protected]
