Great North Run runners on bridge

The SimplyHealth Great North Run is not like any other half marathon.

Starting in Newcastle, the route will take you towards the River Tyne, over the iconic Tyne Bridge and end in the scenic coastal town of South Shields.

The event organisers are confident that they have robust plans to deliver a COVID-safe event. However, if the event can't go ahead we will have options for you to consider such as deferring your place, taking on a different event or receiving a refund of your registration fee.

We would love to have you on our team, so click the pink button and sign up today!
