Children’s Cancer Run, Sunday 19th May 2019

We would love you and your family to join our school team at the 37th Children’s Cancer Run held at Newcastle Racecourse, Gosforth Park.

The Children’s Cancer Run is a cross-country family fun run with one, three and five mile routes to choose from. The event is organised by the North of England Children’s Cancer Research charity and is supported by Greggs. We are very excited to be supporting this event and would like to invite you to join us for what promises to be a fun filled family day out. All participants receive a 37th Anniversary medal and Gregg’s picnic on the day, and all children receive a limited edition t-shirt.

If you would like to take part, you can enter online following the instructions below.

Log on to

  1. Select ‘Sign me up’
  2. Complete your entry form, selecting our school name from the drop down list
  3. Click proceed to payment to complete the registration for you and your family

There is currently an early-bird discount on the entry fees, which is £13 for an adult, £6 for a child or £35 for a family consisting of 2 adults and 3 children.

The three and five mile courses are suitable for children over 7. All children must be supervised by an adult (parents can accompany their children on the Mini Mile without registering but please register if you would like to receive a medal and picnic).

We would encourage you to do what you can in order to raise sponsorship as all of the funds raised will be used to fund the research team at Newcastle who are working to find better treatments and cures for childhood cancer. Every penny raised will make a difference, helping more children beat cancer. Please raise funds using either the paper sponsor forms that will be provided in your run pack, or the on-line fundraising page created when you register on-line. Paper copies of the sponsor forms are available from school.

You will receive your ‘On the Day guide’, run numbers and start time through the post and your children’s t-shirts will be sent home with your child the week before the run. If you have any questions in the meantime please contact the school office.
