Support Us : Simplyhealth Great North Run

Date: Sunday 13 September 2020

ALL PLACES HAVE NOW BEEN FILLED FOR THE GREAT NORTH RUN 2020. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE ADDED TO OUR WAITING LIST, PLEASE LET THE TEAM KNOW. 

The Simplyhealth Great North Run is the world’s greatest half marathon. Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile course is lined with supporters all the way from the iconic Tyne Bridge, right out towards the coast in South Shields. Since 1981 the world’s greatest half marathon has welcomed over one million people across the finish line in South Shields and we’re looking forward to cheering on the next million.

Please sign up to join Team 21 for this challenge! All we ask of our runners is that you pay a £30 registration fee and pledge to raise a minimum of £350 in sponsorship. Why not take on this amazing challenge while wearing one of our vibrant running vests? We only have 15 places so act fast to join Team 21!

We’d like to thank each and every one of our Great North Runners this year. If you have photos from you on race day then please send them through so we can add them to our gallery!
