Great North Run

Great North Run

All charity places now sold out!

All of our charity spots have now been filled for the 2024 Great North Run, please check back next year if you’d like a place for the 2025 event.

The Great North run is welcoming back runners, city to sea course, in September, when they’ll be celebrating the return of our traditional finish line in South Shields. Whether you missed your free in-run pint (we heard this might be a thing), the incredible local support, your post-race fish and chips or just ‘that’ view as you reach the final mile, you’ll be able to soak it all in, once again.  You can join this event with no registration fees, all you have to do is raise the minimum sponsorship amount of £350!
