The Sunshine Run is celebrating its 21st birthday!

Join us as we celebrate the 21st anniversary of The Sunshine Run on Newcastle's Quayside to support children with disabilities, right here in the North East!


Can you believe we're celebrating 21 years of The Sunshine Run?! Our much-loved 5K is back and bigger than ever before as we celebrate 2 decades of running in support of our Sunshine Children.


Our charity Patron and Paralympian, Stephen Miller, will join us at the start line where Sunshine runners will set off from the Millennium Bridge on Newcastle's Quayside and head to Newcastle Business Park and back to cross the finish line in a spectacular photo finish with the Tyne's bridges as a backdrop. The race is flat and fast and perfect for club, fun and team runners.


Back by popular demand, our elite 5K wave will start ahead of the main run to offer competitive and club runners the chance to beat the crowds and race for time. Chip timing will also return as we know how important it is for our runners to get an instant, accurate race time. Some things never change though and we will be welcoming runners of all abilities to our main 5K run taking place at 7pm.

All participants will receive a t-shirt to wear during the run as well as receive a medal on passing the finish line.

For the third year running our wonderful friends at Stagecoach will be our event partners for this iconic event. Stagecoach are synonymous with the North East and they share our vision for a brighter future for all children living with disabilities in our region.
