Great North Run

Join Team SANE and more than 60,000 runners at the Great North Run and change mental health for good. Broadcast live on the BBC, the largest half marathon takes you through the heart of Newcastle and right out to the coast at South Shields. 

We have limited places available in this iconic event, so please register your interest early. We ask that our runners aim to raise a minumum of £350 - every penny will be put to immediate use to help improve the lives of those living with mental illness.
