Great North Run 2020

When: Sunday 13 September 2020

Where: Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

The Great North Run is the biggest, most epic half marathon in the UK, and we want YOU on our team! Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 13.1 mile route takes in all of the city’s iconic sites, and the atmosphere is electric.

Our amazing cheer teams will get you through the wall and over the finish line, where you’ll receive a hero’s welcome!

Looking For A Place?

Our guaranteed places are just £25. All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £350 for children and young people with cancer (and our expert fundraisers have plenty of advice to make this a doddle!)

This could pay for 10 families to spend a night at a CLIC Sargent Home From Home, free accommodation near hospitals that keeps families close to their child while they are receiving treatment.

Already got a place?

If you’ve already got your own place through the ballot you can still join Team Young Lives and help support children and young people with cancer.

We don’t ask you to raise a minimum amount if you’ve got your own place, we simply ask that you raise as much as you can in support of children and young people with cancer.
