August, 22 2023 | James Russell

September is almost upon us, which can only mean one thing?


The Great North Run 2023 Number Plate Inspiration

It’s time for the kids to go back to school! Woohoo!

Only joking, although that’s surely a welcomed bit of respite for lots of parents in the UK.

No, we’re talking about the return of the Great North Run, an event that’s been running (no pun intended) since 1981 and is still going strong today on the banks of the Tyne.

To mark the occasion of the Great North Run, we’ll be running (and again) through some of the very best number plates to mark the occasion. So, if you’re running the race in September, now’s the time to show it with a fantastic private registration!

Let’s jump straight in with a legend of the running world. Sir Mo Farah.

MO 41

Mo, if you’re reading, we’ve got the perfect private registration for you!

The main man himself turns 41 next year, making this the ideal birthday present for one of the most popular and beloved British athletes of a generation.

Famous for running the Great North Run on multiple occasions, Mo Farah has recently announced that this year’s run will be his last before he retires. What a legendary life he’s led and what a brilliant way to commemorate it!

MO 41 can be purchased for £37,999 plus fees from National Numbers, and for an alternative that doesn’t bring with it such a dramatic price tag, MO 6603 is available for £4500 plus fees.


Runners rejoice, we’ve got the ideal number plate to show motorists what you love to do in your spare time.

This one is a truly brilliant private reg for runners of the UK, and you can buy G8 RUN online with National Numbers for just £5,600 plus fees.

364 GNR

Runners around the country and indeed the world know The Great North Run as GNR, and you can display this on your vehicle with this great GNR-based private number plate.

364 GNR is available online with National Numbers for just £1,925 plus fees, and you can show how many times a year you get out for a run, including the rest day the day after The Great North Run.

Some runners like to take life at a vigorous pace, others prefer to pace themselves and take it somewhat easy compared to the competition.

For those who see the joy of taking things a bit slower, but not quite walking levels (God forbid), we’ve got the private plate for you.

JOG 63R demonstrates your love for the jogging game perfectly and it’s an example of a private registration using numbers really cleverly to spell a word. The 6 and 3 replicate the shape and effect of a G and E exceptionally well, making this a unique personalised plate for the right kind of jogger.

Another Newcastle-based number plate to finish us off, with this cracker that’s seemingly purpose-built for a Geordie.
