Great North Run

Take on one of the biggest half marathons in the world with #TeamShine

When you join Team Shine you will receive:

  • Shine running vest or a T shirt

Charity Places 

Shine charity places are not yet available. Please complete the form below to express your interest in the 2022 race. Shine charity places have a registration fee of £35 with a minimum sponsorship pledge of £400. 

Do you have your own place?

If you have a membership or if you’re one of the lucky ones to receive a ballot place, first of all congratulations! Secondly, we would love for you to be a part of #TeamShine in September for one of the worlds biggest half marathons! With no minimum sponsorship pledge or registration fee, we simply ask you to raise as much as you can to support members and families with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. Plus you'll have access to all the great benefits above.


The Great North Run is open to disabled people including wheelchair users. Please visit the Great North Run website for more information.
