Newcastle upon Tyne, 9 September 2018

Great North Run

The Great North Run as been officially recognised by the Guinness World Records as the biggest half marathon on the planet!

We have a limited number of charity places available for this iconic event. Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge. If you're lucky you might even get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.

From there runners will travel through Gateshead, being entertained by the many bands on the run. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields, where the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course.

Charity places are available for £50 and the minimum sponsorship is £350. Runners will receive an Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity running top, fundraising pack, tailored online fundraising page and ongoing support.
