Great North Run
Our amazing 2022 Team join us from all over the UK! London, Norwick, Manchester, Alnwick, Shilbottle, Wooler, Lowick, Belford, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Reston, Duns and Edinburgh.
Berwick Cancer Cars have had a Great North Run team since 2015 when seven runners, all from Berwick-upon-Tweed, took up the challenge to run the world famous 13.1 mile route in aid of our Cars.
For 2022 we're incredibly proud that in our very special 30th anniversary year, our amazing GNR team has grown to 64 fundraising runners and, as well as our local heroes, we have runners joining us from all over the UK!
"The friendly and helpful Cancer Cars volunteers enabled my mum to make her hospital appointments on time and relaxed, meaning that we as a family knew our mum is in safe hands. Cancer Cars are not only helping people in our area with cancer, but also their families. Please help me say a big THANK YOU to Cancer Cars."

We will once again be organising our very popular weekly 'social training runs' in 2022, starting Wednesday 13th July, 9 weeks before the BIG DAY. We love our get togethers and everyone is welcome to join us whether they are running for us or not !! Our first run will be a short easy fun run around the Berwick Town Walls (ALL our runs are FUN !!) increasing the distance each week by roughly a mile. To give all those legs a rest we break a week before the Great North Run.
All our runners are given a free, sponsored running top as a thank you and we encourage all our team to wear Berwick Cancer Cars tops during their training runs as it gives our sponsors the support they deserve too. For anyone wanting extra tops we have these are on sale at £15 each and we still have various sizes available. Please make contact with Robert at firstname.lastname@example.org

Our Great North Runs from Previous Years
Congratulations to our Great North Run 2021 (40th Birthday) Runners!! After the disappointment of 2020 we were delighted the 40th Anniversary Celebrations went ahead and our amazing team of 53 fundraising runners raised over £32,000.
Covid-19 - The Great North Run was cancelled and our runners had to hang up their running shoes until 2021 !!
In 2018 we managed an amazing 41 runners in The Great North Run and The Junior Great North Run raising over £20,000! We also starred in the opening credits of the BBC coverage.
It is difficult to get entries for the run as it is so popular but for the 2017 run we managed to have 39 participants and raised the magnificent sum of £14,000. This money allowed us to replace one of cars and name him 'Miles' in recognition of all the miles ran by our incredible Berwick Cancer Cars GNR Team Runners.
ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE?
A Massive 'Thank You' for the support of our local businesses :
