Speaking about the 40th anniversary of the run, last year, the organisers said:

“We waited almost two years to run together and we hope you had a day to remember. Thanks so much to everyone who came along to celebrate GNR40 with us! From our brilliant NHS heroes who were the official starters of the race, to the first northener winning the race since 1985, the weekend was a real show of regional pride, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

So whether you ran the 40th Great North Run, came along to cheer on the runners, watched live on the BBC, or showed your support online – thank you for being a part of it.”
