Join our Great North Run team!
Every year, more than 55,000 runners come from across the globe to run the Great North Run, the world’s largest, most prestigious half-marathon.
This iconic race has a hard to beat atmosphere, with thousands of people lining the streets to come along and support from the start in the heart of Newcastle all the way to the finish along the seafront in South Shields.
Unlucky in the ballot?
Not to worry – we’ve got you covered! We have a limited amount of charity places available and would love for you to join the team! Head to the bottom of this page to register with #TeamOrange for just £29. We just ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £350 to help beat muscular dystrophy.
Do you have your own place – lucky in the ballot?
If you got a place in the ballot, we’d still love to have you on board with #TeamOrange! Please fill out this own place form so we can get you signed up with us. There is no registration fee but we just ask that you raise as much as you can!
