NFR LGBT5k Festival of Running 2020 This will not take place in summer 2020. Stay tuned for future plans.


On your marks…

We had planned to return this year in July to the Newcastle Town Moor in conjunction with Northern Pride. Pride has been forced to cancel, and with all the uncertainty about when or if gatherings will be allowed, we have suspended our race indefinitely.


Supporting Rainbow Home

We had planned to support Rainbow Home with a £1 donation made for every entry to the LGBT5k. Rainbow Home are a group working lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans asylum seekers in Newcastle and the north east. They provide a support in a safe space, with integration, friendship, confidence, to help enable them to feel at home. Clearly we can’t now do this, so we encourage you to enter the Rainbow Home Virtual Run to help them raise much-needed funds.

Find out more about their work via Mesmac.

Event details

The date was set for  Friday 17th July 2020 – BUT THIS IS NOW SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY. We will update the Page as things become clearer, and we see if any kind of event can take place in 2020.
