Take on the world’s biggest half marathon for Shine!

The Great North Run is an iconic, and often a bucket list event that starts in Newcastle and finishes along the seafront at South Shields. Famous for its fantastic atmosphere, great on-route entertainment and a very warm welcome from the crowds of spectators, this is an event not to miss.

Take part alongside 57,000 other runners in this 13.1 mile half marathon. You'll run through the buzzing streets of Newcastle, over the famous Tyne Bridge and head to the seafront finish at South Shields. Soak up the amazing atmosphere as you run along and then feel that incredible sense of achievement when you cross the finish line!

Whether you’re an inexperienced runner or someone looking to set a new personal best, this is an event for you!

So, sign up for your guaranteed place and join #TeamShine today!

What was your favourite part about completing the Great North Run for Shine?

‘Pushing myself to accomplish a half marathon, something I did not think I would be able to achieve. Also being able to provide support for those who may experience a similar situation to what me and my partner went through. Go for it! It's a great feeling giving a little back’
