Great North Run 2017

City Centre, Newcastle

Registration fee: £20

Take on the Great North Run and change the lives of children across the UK

Abuse changes childhoods. But so can we. Join our Great North Run team in 2017 and help us fight for every childhood.

Now the UK’s biggest and most famous half marathon, the route takes you from Newcastle, over the iconic Tyne Bridge and on to the finish in picturesque coastal town of South Shields.

Every mile you run and every penny you raise will mean that when a child needs us, we’re there. Together we can rebuild children’s lives and prevent abuse from ruining anymore.
