Join our Team Get your charity place

The Bupa Great North Run is the world's largest half marathon - with over 54,000 runners pounding the streets of Newcastle, Gateshead and South Shields every year, this is a race not to be missed.

One of the most exciting events in the sporting calendar, it draws thousands of supporters, creating an electrifying atmosphere which leaves the participants buzzing.

At 13.1 miles it is challenging yet achievable and the sense of pride you will gain from taking part to raise money for charity will make it all the more worthwhile.
