Great North Run

Help us to make the discoveries that defeat cancer by taking part in the UK's biggest half marathon, with over 1 million runners having crossed the finish line.

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge where, if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.
