Frequently Asked Questions

Find out more about taking part in the Great North Run in aid of Kidscan with our FAQ’s! Can’t find what you’re looking for? Contact us and one of our team will be in touch to give you a helping hand!

What is the minimum sponsorship amount?

If you purchase a Kidscan Charity place, you will notice the entry price is lower than if you purchase your ticket directly. That’s because Kidscan purchase a number of charity places for the race in advance.

To ensure that Kidscan can cover any costs associated with the event we will ask you to raise a minimum amount of money for Kidscan in return for your charity place.

For the Greater North Run Tickets are £25 with a minimum fundraising target of £250

How do I raise the minimum sponsorship amount?

Fundraising can be easier than you think! As soon as you are signed up you can set up an online donation page or use one of our paper sponsor forms to get your fundraising off to a great start.

We will also send you a fundraising pack, full of tips and tricks to help you reach your fundraising goals. You’ll also be introduced to our fundraising team, who are on hand to help you with your fundraising.

Can my family and friends cheer me on?

We love making as much noise as possible on race day! As the big day gets closer we will send you details of where our cheer point will be so you can invite your friends and family! Let us know in advance, and we’ll make sure we have our purple flags ready!

Note: Due to Covid19 restrictions some events may not have cheer points. We are following to guidance of event organisers and will keep our runners updated.
