  • Great North Run 2016: Join team brainstrust for this iconic race

    The Great North Run is world's leading half marathon and this year you can run it with team brainstrust and raise vital funds for brain tumour support. The run, which attracts some of the world’s most famous athletes, is televised each year. Let's see if this year we can get team brainstrust on the big screen. 

    2016 Great North Run Route

    The 13.1 mile route starts from Newcastle upon Tyne and goes on to take runners through the city centre and over the River Tyne, where you get to cross the iconic Tyne Bridge.

    Runners will then sprint through Gateshead, where you’re guaranteed to be entertained by live bands and screams from thousands of supporters. You’ll know you’re nearing the end when you pass through South Shields, where, from the top of Prince Edward Road, the stunning views of the sea give inspiration for the last push towards the finishing line.

    Alongside the sights and buzz of Newcastle, another highlight of the race is the Red Arrows who pass runners overhead. They don't call this run great for no reason. 

    Why take part?

    By running with us, you'll be raising vital funds that will help people living with a brain tumour to feel less afraid, less isolated and more in control. There are currently 60,000 people living with a brain tumour in the UK who need our help. Your funds will support these people.

    How we spend the funds you raise
