Apart from the huge round of applause and deafening cheers as you cross the finish line, a shiny medal, exclusive finisher's T-shirt, goodie bag AND that overwhelming sense of achievement for accomplishing such an amazing physical challenge... you will be raising much needed funds for Open Arms and building brighter futures for children in Malawi.

"It’s a day we’re not going to forget any time soon!"

“We can’t speak highly enough of the event. From the moment we came into Newcastle the energy was amazing: from the runners, to the supporters, the volunteers and all the different charities involved, there was so much love on show and it was great to be a part of. It’ll live long in the memory!” - GNR 2021 participants, Sam & Ross (aka 'Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men'!)
