If you’ve done your share of 5K’s and 10k’s and want to step up the pace, or just fancy doing something in-between your marathons, why not take part in the Great North Run on the 15th September?
The event has now grown to a record 55,000 accepted entrants from over 100,000 applicants last year – it’s the World’s biggest and best half marathon, the ultimate mass participation event!
Starting in Newcastle, the course takes in the iconic Tyne Bridge, goes through Gateshead passing the famous international athletics stadium and finishes in the coastal town of South Shields. Live music, on course refreshment and thousands of cheering supporters will keep you motivated every step of the way.
If you’re keen to take part, there’s still chance to get a place through the
British Lung Foundation.
Deadline – 26th July!
Don’t miss out!
The charity requires a £50 registration fee and ask all runners to raise a minimum of £300 to help them support those with lung disease.
Running for a charity doesn’t only mean you’ll help the lives of those less fortunate, but they’ll also make sure your day is extra special! The BLF provide:
- BLF running vest and t-shirt
- Training Guide
- Fundraising pack
- On hand support from start to finish
- Any fundraising materials you need
- Post race marquee, with refreshments and a massages on race day!
