Our race told in numbers…
The distance of the GNR in miles.
The number of runners who take part every year.
The average half marathon takes 15,000-20,000 steps to complete.
The average finishing time for the GNR is 2 hours 26 minutes (or 146 minutes).
The average runner’s speed is 5.38mph, meaning it takes them 11 mins 10 seconds to run each mile.
The entry fee for our GNR team is at a reduced rate of £35
The standard Cash Gift amount we give to young palliative patients is £350 and the amount we are asking our runners to raise in support of our charity.
Every 43 steps (roughly) you take on the day of the GNR will bring £1 to a young cancer patient facing limited time. Finish the race and you will have fully financed a Cash Gift for a young person to make the most of the time they have. You would be the reason that a little boy could go on one last holiday with his family or a little girl could have the birthday party she always dreamed about. Not too bad at all.
