The Great North Run is the premier event in the Great Run series and firmly established as the world's most popular half-marathon, with over 50,000 runners taking part in 2015. The course takes in the iconic Tyne Bridge and finishes in the coastal town of South Shields.
Our charity places in the Great North Run are now closed. If you have secured your own ballot place in the event, we would love to welcome you Team Alzheimer's Society. Sign up now by completing our own place form or by calling 0330 333 0804. If you have your own place in the race you will not have a minimum fundraising target, anything you can raise is fantastic.
