Simplyhealth Great North Run, September

Join #TeamEve for the world’s biggest half marathon on 12th September 2021.


About the event

With over 57,000 runners taking part, this incredible challenge will take you from the centre of Newcastle, through Gateshead to the stunning coastline of South Shields. Known for its party atmosphere, this is a half-marathon you don’t want to miss.

Apply for a charity place

As the 2020 Great North Run was cancelled, the majority of our runners have rolled over their places to 2021. This means we have a limited number of places remaining. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.

For one of our charity places we ask for a £50 registration fee and £400 minimum sponsorship.

Have your own place through the ballot?

If you were lucky enough to get a ballot place we’d love to have you on board #TeamEve! Do get in touch by emailing Calum at and we can support you with your fundraising and training.
