The Great North Run is part of a weekend of sport in the city of Newcastle and is one of the world's best and well attended half marathons. This 13 mile course takes you through the landmarks and sights of Newcastle before crossing the finish line in South Shields.
This is one event not to be missed,
so get your guaranteed charity place with Blind Veterans UK.
Join us for the world's leading half marathon on 11th September 2016! It has attracted world class runners like Mo Farah and Paula Radcliffe. We would love to have you on our team and help us to raise funds to ensure that no one who has served our country should have to battle blindness alone.

We have guaranteed places available for a registration fee of just £30! We also ask that you can pledge to raise £300 in sponsorship to help us to continue to support blind ex-Service men and women with our in-depth expertise, experience and full range of services.

If you have secured your own place in the ballot with the organisers, we would love to have you in our running team! Please get in touch and let us know that you have your own place and we can send you a fundraising pack and running vest.
