The Great North Run is the world's largest half marathon (13.1 miles). 

Join over 50,000 runners taking to the streets of Newcastle.  The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000m bronze medallist and BBC sports commentator Brendan Foster.  The event has an incredible atmosphere, starting in Newcastle upon Tyne and finishing by the sea in South Shields.

Join our #DreamTeam and help make Dreams Come True for children with serious or life-limiting conditions.
