Sunshine Run 5K 2022
Wednesday 15th June, Newcastle Quayside

Our Sunshine Run 5K is back for 2022!

Take part in our 19th Sunshine Run on Newcastle's Quayside to support children with disabilities, right here in the North East!

We've certainly missed our Sunshine Run and we know many of our supporters have too and so we're thrilled to announce it will return on Wednesday 15th June. 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.

New for 2022, we have introduced a brand new 3K wave, especially for 13-18 years old's who have been keen to take part in previous years. Whether you're in training for your next race, the Junior GNR or just want to have fun, we are thrilled to offer this youth element for our younger supporters.


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 second 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.
