Great North Run

Race info:  9 September 2018 | Newcastle | 13.1mi

We're looking for people to run and raise money for Team Age UK at the next Great North Run half marathon.

The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world

You'll join over 57,000 people on the 13.1 mile course - starting from Newcastle upon Tyne and passing the famous international athletics stadium before finishing at the coastal town of South Shields.

Whether you're a pro or novice, the race offers something for everyone. With live music, the Red Arrows flying overhead and thousands of supporters cheering you on, the Great North Run is an unforgettable experience.

Can we count on you to run for Team Age UK?

Here's how you can get involved:

  1. You first need to register your place through the Great North Run website. Please note that Ballot entry closes at midday on Monday 5 February.
  2. Once you have your place, create your Age UK fundraising page on JustGiving. Once you're set up, we'll send you an Age UK welcome pack and introduce you to our team who will support you with your fundraising.

If you decide not to set up a JustGiving fundraising page, contact us on to let us know you're running for us.

I started running at 60, still running at 76 and I'm hoping to carry on until I'm 80!
