Simplyhealth Great North Run

Sunday 9th September 2018


Join the team at St Giles, by getting involved in the world’s biggest half marathon the Great North Run, which takes place on September 9th 2018.

Take part alongside celebrities and runners of all abilities as they work their way round the 13.1 mile route, travelling through the city centre, towards the river Tyne and across the iconic Tyne Bridge, where lucky entrants might catch a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead. Click here for more information on the race.

Entry for the Great North Run ballot is now closed, but St Giles has already secured 10 places for the race. You can register your interest in securing one of these spaces and becoming part of the St Giles team by completing the form below. Once your details have been received our team will get in touch to talk you through the next steps.

Once your place is confirmed, registration costs just £35 and all we ask is that you raise a minimum of £350 towards the vital work of St Giles Hospice. We will send you a fundraising pack, your running vest or Tech tee and help support you right up to the start line and all the way to the finish
