I'm running to raise money for vital research


Great North Run

Great North Run

If you’re going to run a half marathon you may as well make it the biggest and most famous one in the world!  The Great North Run starts in the heart of Newcastle with the 13.1 mile route finishing in South Shields to cheers from a fantastic crowd.

Run all over kidney disease!

You’ll find us in our marquee in the Charity Village after the race armed with refreshments, eager to hear how you got on. Our team of masseurs will also be on standby to soothe your tired and aching legs.

Important information: the event organisers have announced that the Great North Run 2020 has been cancelled and is scheduled to take place on 12 September 2021.
