  • Great North Run 2017: Join team brainstrust in the world's biggest half marathon

    If you already have your own space and want to use it to fundraise, then why not join team brainstrust today?

    You will be helping thousands of people in the UK who are living with a brain tumour.


    The Route

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


    You will race through Gateshead, heading towards South Shields, while being cheered on by the thousands of supporters and bands lining the route.


    Why join the team?

    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 them.

    How we spend the funds you raise

    Join the Great North Run team today
