Already have your own place in the Great North Run?

If you have secured your place directly through the race organisers, then please complete our online form to join the team. You will receive all the same fantastic support as our charity place runners, the only difference is you will not have a fundraising target. All we ask is that you raise as much as you can!

Why take part in the Great North Run for Alzheimer's Society?

In return for running for us, we will send you everything you need to ensure a great race experience. You'll get a fundraising and training support pack, regular newsletters and your very own Alzheimer's Society running top to wear with pride on the day.

We'd love you to join the team. With your support we can continue to make sure that people live well with dementia today and fight for a world without dementia tomorrow.
