Great North Run

The Great north run… application for our charity places have now closed. thank you for your interest.

The 2016 Great North Run will see 57,000 runners travel the 13.1 mile route from Newcastle to South Shields, passing over the iconic Tyne Bridge. This is often said to be the greatest half marathon in the world with an amazing atmosphere too!

For the first time ever we have managed to secure some places in the Great North Run. This year also marks our 30th anniversary and we invited people to apply for one of our charity places. These places have now been filled.


If you have already been successful in getting your own place in the ballot and would like to run for our charity, please do get in touch [email protected] or tel 01524 382538. We would love you to join our team.

We will provide:-

  • St John’s Hospice running vest or t-shirt
  • Training advice
  • Help and support with your fundraising

Good luck to all you runners out there and we look forward to hearing from you!
