Can I move to a shorter distance event?

Created by Liam Turnbull, Modified on Tue, 21 Nov 2023 at 02:41 PM by Liam Turnbull

Please note this applies for all Great Run events aside from Great North Run

In events where we offer multi distances on the same event weekend, participants can transfer to the shorter distance (subject to there being capacity within the event). 

Please contact us here to request this. 

  • Pre-race number allocation – up until the point whereby entrants are allocated their race number and fulfilment takes place. Approx. 6 weeks prior to the event weekend. 

The entrant will be removed from the longer distance event and sent instructions of how to secure their place in the shorter distance event. 


No admin fee is charged, and no entry fee is refunded.

  • Post-race number allocation

Once race numbers have been allocated and we’ve started to process race packs (approx. 6 weeks prior to the event date). 

We will apply a £5 late distance change admin fee.
