Registration for Mini GNR opens 25th February 2020. 

On Saturday 7th September 2019, 60 members of Team Mini Sunshine ran, walked and wheeled the Mini and Junior Great North Run making us the proudest charity in the North East! We want to grow our 2020 team to raise even more awareness of children with disabilities in our region.

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 was a truly inspirational and emotional day.

This year we're hoping for Team Mini Sunshine to be bigger and better than ever for 2020 so we would love for you to take part. Registration to take part opens on the official Great North Run website.  For junior places registration is on 18th February, and for Mini spots registration opens on the 25th February.  

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!  We also have a special "quiet tent" for those participants that may feel a bit overwhelmed, ensuring everyone feels safe and comfortable on the day. Each participant will receive a T-shirt, certificate and treats on the day

Join us for #TeamMiniSunshine 2020 on Saturday 12th September!
