Great North Run

Join thousands of fellow runners and take on the world’s greatest half marathon. The Great North Run is one of the highlights of the running calendar and we can think of a really good reason to participate – raising money for Ben!

Broadcast live on the BBC, the run starts in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and you’ll pass by cheering supporters who line the road all the way to the iconic Tyne Bridge. As you travel through Gateshead you’ll be entertained by a range of bands, before crossing the finish line at South Shields. You may even get to see the Red Arrows flying overhead!

What support will I receive as a Ben runner?

  • Unlimited support from the Ben events team
  • Fundraising pack
  • A Ben running vest
  • Support (and lots of loud cheering) on the event day when we can
