Great North Run

  • Great Runs Newcastle Upon Tyne (map)

Join TeamNBUK for the world's biggest half marathon!

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.

From there runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained by our Bands on the Run. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course.

From that point there is just over a mile to go and the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish gantry.

We have limited places so please apply now.

There is a registration fee of £30 per person and we ask you to raise a minimum of £300. You will receive a running vest or t-shirt and our fundraising pack.

The public ballot for the Great North Run has now closed.  If you have been successful in gaining a place, you can still ride for NBUK.  Just let us know.  As you will have paid for your own place there will be no minimum sponsorship - but we hope you will raise as much as you can!

Every penny you raise gives hope to families of children with neuroblastoma.

Thank you!
