However, if you are still interested in taking on the Great North Run please get in touch via email  or call us 01483 741430.

The Great North Run is the World's biggest Half Marathon! With the best local support, famed for its party atmosphere, this is a truly classic and fantastic challenge to take on!

2020 should have seen the Great North Run celebrating its 40th year but the impact of COVID-19 put these celebrations on hold. So this September the party is back to mark this amazing milestone!

From Newcastle city centre, over the iconic Tyne Bridge, with the swooping Red Arrows overhead. 

Take on this Half Marathon and join our fabulous Walk the Walk Team in 2021 with 60,000 others (yes it is that big)! Whether you need a Charity Place or you have a Ballot Place, all are welcome! 

Raise money, Raise awareness, Get fit and Have fun Walking the Walk!
