Great Run Company


The Great North Run is the world’s biggest half marathon, with over 57,000 people taking part every year. Famous for its warm North East welcome and electric atmosphere, this event is not to be missed! The route takes you through Newcastle, over the iconic Tyne Bridge and on to the finish line in the picturesque coastal town of South Shields, where our team will be waiting to congratulate you after you cross the finish line.

By taking on this challenge and raising £300, you could help fund 8.5 hours of care for a patient staying at our Crimple House Inpatient Unit, enabling our team to provide expert support with symptoms and helping to bring comfort at the end of their life.

What you’ll receive as part of Team Purple

• A free Saint Michael’s running top

• Support from our friendly fundraising team from day one to ensure you reach your goals

• A fundraising pack bursting with top tips

• Regular e-newsletters

• Access to the North Yorkshire Hospice Care marquee in the Charity Village, where you will be greeted by our supportive fundraising team and lots of snacks to keep you going!

• All participants will also receive a Great North Run-branded medal and optional t-shirt upon completion of the run

Most importantly, you will be helping to support local people when they need us at the most difficult of times.

How to sign up

Please head to our Eventbrite page here or scroll down to register for the event. Once you have signed up, a member of the team will be in touch with you to send you your digital fundraising pack and t-shirt, and guide you through the rest of the signup process.

You will also be required to redeem a token for the Great North Run, and your place in the race won’t be confirmed until you have done this. This will be sent to you by the Great Run Company once our team has been in touch!
