Great North Run 2022

Great North Run

Logo 3-01

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 61 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."
Susan Howlett, GNR Cancer Cars Team Runner

Junior and Mini Great North Run

Our little friends taking part in the Mini/Junior Great North Run on Saturday 10th September 2022.

We will once again be organising our very popular weekly 'social training runs' in 2022, starting 10 weeks before the BIG DAY.  We love our get togethers which start off with 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.

'Visit our dedicated Facebook Page - BERWICK CANCER CARS GNR2022'

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

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.
