The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world and we have a place for you. We were lucky enough to be allocated 15 places for 2023 and demand has been high.

Join the York & Scarborough Hospitals Charity team and run the 13.1 miles from Newcastle to South Shields. With the famous warm North East welcome, you will be part of something amazing.

Registration Fee: £55

Suggested Sponsorship: £300
