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.

Meningitis and septicaemia are devastating diseases which can kill and cause serious disability within hours. They can affect anyone - but infants under the age of 5 are especially vulnerable. Our vision is a world free from these diseases, where 1000s of people around the world are not killed every day. Meningitis Research Foundation supports research to prevent, detect and treat the diseases, and works at all levels to help sufferers and their families.
