The Great North Run

Date
11 September 2022

Join us in running one of the UK’s most iconic half marathons – The Great North Run and help to raise vital funds for Together for Short Lives and the seriously ill children we are here for.

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, this 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of runners will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads you to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most beautiful sights along the whole course. From that point, you’ll make your way over the finish line with hundreds of supporters singing your praises and cheering you on to victory.

What’s in it for you?

  • A lovely technical running vest or t-shirt and training resources (water bottle, tshirt, vests etc)
  • Our fundraising guide full of ideas to help you hit your target. We’re on hand every step of the way to help you with resources, fundraising ideas and more.
  • Regular chats with your dedicated steward, Jenny, with ideas, information and encouragement!

Besides everything else, you will have the pride of knowing that funds raised really will make a difference to seriously ill children and their families across the UK.

Please get in touch with Jenny on jenny.benson@togetherforshortlives.org.uk with any queries regarding sign up, routes and how your support can make a difference to seriously ill children and their families across the UK.
