Event Details

Were you successful in the public ballot? We’d love you to join #TeamMND!

Unfortunately our charity places have now been sold. However, please join our waiting list and we’ll let you know when a place becomes available.

The race heads through Newcastle city centre towards the River Tyne, where thousands of runners will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge – and where if you’re lucky enough – you’ll get a glimpse of and enjoy the thrilling sensation of the Red Arrows passing overhead. Running through Gateshead, you will be kept entertained by bands to lift your spirits as the route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads you to South Shields with the view of the sea proving to be one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course – the home straight!

Participants in wheelchairs are more than welcome to take part in the Great North Run! If you’d like to take part in a wheelchair please get in touch to find out more.
