The full Great North Run Withdrawal & Refund Policy can be found here.

If your entry is accepted, your fee is not refundable unless supported by a doctor’s note. Refunds will not be possible for any other eventuality.

Refunds will be accepted at least ten weeks prior to the event. Otherwise we will be unable to stop your race pack being sent. After this time no refund will be offered. 

You will need to confirm your full name, date of birth/post code, the name of the event you have entered and also include proof of your medical issue. We can accept a copy of a medical note, copy of appointment letter, physio notes etc.

All refunds are subject to a £5.00 administration charge. 

For the Great North Run only, you are be eligible for a guaranteed entry the following year at the standard entry fee. Runners who wish to withdraw their entry must contact us here to make their request. Please include your full name, date of birth and post code along with the statement below:

I wish to withdraw my entry from the 2022 Great North Run for a guaranteed entry into the 2023 event. I understand that I will be contacted via email in November with instructions of how to register and pay to secure the entry.
