The Great North Run 2016

The Great North Run 2016Looking for a challenge?

On Sunday 11th September 2016 the biggest and most famous half marathon in the world! Starting in the heart of Newcastle, this 13.1 mile route takes you over the Tyne Bridge before crossing the finish line in South Shields to cheers from a spectacular crowd. The race is run by a mix of elite athletes, celebrities and people raising awareness and money for a cause close to their heart…like you!

Last year (2015) was our first year as a registered charity in The Great North Run and as such we were limited to 5 places (you gain more places as the years go on) and we were luck enough to have another 8 people with their own place run for us.  This year we have been awarded 10 places, not a lot but an increase all the same.  We will give the 2015 runners first refusal but if you are thinking of running for us and joining our team we ask that you apply for a place in the ballot, if you are successful great but if not we shall keep you in mind should one of our allotted places be available.

Steps to take if you would like to run for us:

  1. Send us a message on Facebook: CLICK HERE, eMail us sponsor@berwickcancersupport.co.uk or call Andrew on 07969842504 and let us know you are interested.
  2. Register for the Ballot reminder service on The Great North Run Website, CLICK HERE, and let us know if you are successful.

Hopefully in future years we shall get more places but in the meantime trying to get your own place first would be a great help.

The 2015 run was fantastic and if you speak to anyone who took part they will tell you it is a wonderful experience and the runners managed to raise a massive £5514 for our charity.  You also get to meet new people and make some great friends.

We are in the process of trying to find a sponsor for tops and transport etc so once we have confirmed numbers we shall put this in place.

Have a look at the 2015 team HERE and some of our photos HERE.

We would love to have you run for us!
