Great North Run
The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world, taking place annually in North East England each September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000 m bronze medallist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.

How to get a place
If you want to run on behalf of our charity, there is a minimum fundraising target of £200. You can apply to join the ballot to be selected for a charity place by clicking the link below and filling out an application form.
If you have secured your own place through The Great North Run website or your running club, we would be delighted to have you join our team and receive all the benefits of a charity place runner. An own place is a place that you have bought from the race organisers yourself or been lucky in a ballot or from your running club. This is not a charity confirmed place but we would love to have you join our team. Please click here to join Team C4B at this event and register your own place with us.
