Registration is now open to join our team on Sunday 8th September 2019.
A spectator-lined course covers 13.1 miles from Newcastle, across the iconic Tyne Bridge and onto the picturesque coastal finish in South Shields.
The Great North Run is firmly established as the world’s most popular half-marathon. From just 5,000 runners at the very first staging in 1981, the event has now grown to an unmissable experience for over 54,000 each year.
The Great North Run is not only part of the culture in the North East, but has touched lives across the UK and around the world - with runners from over 40 different countries taking part.
Most runners choose to raise money for charities close to their hearts. Thank you very much for choosing HospiceCare North Northumberland.
Here are some thoughts from our previous runners -
"I just wanted to say a quick BIG thank you for putting on such a good "recovery tent" after the GNR. The lunch packs, sweets, cups of tea, massage and fantastic atmosphere really made it a very special day. Thanks again, see you next year......."
"Thanks again for yesterday the support and tent was fab!"
"Even though it was really tough, it was a privilege to be able to give back something to the hospice. Knowing that every penny raised will help other families provided real motivation to carry on! What a day!"
