Mini and Junior Great North Run 2022
Saturday 10th September, Newcastle Quayside

Run for Team Mini Sunshine in 2022!

It's safe to say that Junior and Mini Great North Run day is our absolute favourite day of the year. and we were thrilled to see our children, families and supporters at the 2021 event wearing their Team Mini Sunshine t-shirts with pride.

Team Mini Sunshine is the opportunity for many of our Sunshine Children to take part in a mainstream sporting event where their disability does not prevent them from having fun and being like any other child. We are always bursting with pride to see so many of our children cross the finish line in what is a truly inspirational and emotional day. We also love to see siblings and supporters take part too!

We are thrilled that the dedicated Wheelchair wave and accessible Mini 50 wave will return for 2022 thanks to the incredible support from many of our families. The Mini 50 event was created especially for children with disabilities and additional needs who require a little extra support to complete a 50 meter distance, this support might include a frame, other piece of equipment or parent.

All Team Mini Sunshine participants will get access to our exclusive VIP zone, situated on the quayside. It's the perfect place for families to meet, runners can utilise before and after the event, family members can cheer runners on and our team can welcome Team Mini Sunshine back with a treat to say thank you! Each participant will receive a T-shirt, certificate and treats on the day.
