Great North Run 2017 in aid of Saras Hope Foundation

What's happening?

The biggest half marathon in the world!
Inspired by the amazing 2016 runners? or loved it that much you want to do it again? Sign up now to secure your place and raise money for Saras Hope Foundation - helping local children and their families living with cancer.

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.

From there runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained many bands on the run. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course.

From that point there is just over a mile to go and the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish gantry.
