Join #TeamStGiles at the Simplyhealth Great North Run
Raise funds as you run this September by joining #TeamStGiles for the Simplyhealth Great North Run!
Take on the 13.1 mile route from Newcastle’s city centre to the coast in South Shields in the event’s 40th anniversary year. There will be thousands of runners taking part, and you could be one of them running in aid of local people and their families living with a potentially terminal illness. The event is live on the BBC and we’d love as much orange to make it onto the screens as possible.
To mark the anniversary, we are offering our purchased places for just £40!
As part of #TeamStGiles we will provide you with training tips, fundraising guides and a t-shirt to help you complete your distance, reach your target and most importantly have fun!

“Raising funds for St Giles is so fulfilling. Dad looked forward to going there so as a family we are eternally grateful. They helped him to keep his smile to the end.”
In 2019, Craig Ruff and his family formed “Team Tone” to run the Tamworth Gate Gallop for St Giles in memory of his father Tony. In October, Craig and his sister Danielle also ran the Great Birmingham Half Marathon in aid of the hospice.
“When I did the half marathon, I had moments where I struggled, but that was nothing compared to the effort St Giles put in to caring for Dad.” Craig explained.
“St Giles is such an important local charity. You always feel cared for there and it’s such a comforting place.
“I’d run to the ends of the earth to give them the funds to help people like Dad and families like us.”
Join Craig by fundraising for St Giles and help us to support local people and their families living with a potentially terminal illness.
