2018 Great North Run

Sunday, September 9, 2018

The Simplyhealth Great North Run is the world’s most popular half marathon, with over 50,000 runners each year. The spectator-lined course covers 13.1 miles from Newcastle, across the iconic Tyne Bridge, through Gateshead and onto a picturesque coastal finish in South Shields. The run is broadcast live on BBC TV and has live music en route, on course refreshment and thousands of cheering supporters helping to keep you motivated every step of the way – the atmosphere on race day is electric.

Here’s how you can be part of 2018’s #TeamCNE:

  • Run with a Children North East place

As a charity, we have places available for you to run as part of #TeamCNE. The cost of each place is £55 and we ask you to raise a minimum sponsorship of £300. Run with your own place? The Simplyhealth Great North Run 2018 entry ballot has now closed.

  • Run with your own place

If you are one of the lucky ones who manage to get your own place, we would be love to have you as part of #TeamCNE. There is no registration fee or minimum fundraising target if you have your own place, we just ask that you raise as much as you can to help disadvantaged children in our region.

What do you get?

For all our runners we provide a Children North East branded running vest, a sponsorship pack along with support on how to reach your fundraising target as well as a regular newsletter with training tips, news and updates.
