Join almost 60,000 other runners in 2019 and secure your charity place in the world's biggest half marathon, the Great North Run.
The Great North Run, as the name suggests, is great in every sense. It’s an exhilarating challenge, completing the course is a great achievement and, perhaps most importantly of all, it’s a great way to raise money for a well deserving charity.
It is, without exception, the world's greatest half marathon as you and almost 60,000 others will know as you line up in the centre of Newcastle and head out through Gateshead and South Tyneside before arriving, sufficiently pleased with yourself and, quite probably, exhausted, in South Shields.
Extra motivation and support will come in the form of the many ‘Bands on the Run’ spread along the course, as well as thousands of other runners and the internal desire to reach your goal.
Making the discoveries that defeat cancer.
We work on all cancer types including children's cancers, pancreatic, brain & lung cancer. Tragically, one in three of us will develop cancer in our lifetime. And even if we are not directly affected, almost all of us will be moved by the pain and suffering cancer causes to a relative or friend.
The ICR is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes. Our scientists and clinicians are working every day in our labs to make a real impact on cancer patients’ lives.
Whether you’ve been affected by cancer, or whether you simply want to further world-leading research, please get involved and support us today.
