Great North Run 2012

Great North Run

The Great North Run is firmly established as the world's greatest half marathon. Starting in Newcastle, the course takes in the iconic Tyne Bridge, goes through Gateshead passing the famous international athletics stadium and finishes in the coastal town of South Shields. Live music, on-course refreshments and thousands of cheering supporters will keep you motivated every step of the way.

We have guaranteed places in return for a £30 registration fee and a minimum sponsorship pledge of £400. If you have already secured a place then all we ask you to do is raise as much as you can.

Why run for us

Because men deserve better. It’s that simple.

That’s why we’ve invested millions of pounds in research, services and awareness over the last 10 years. It’s the reason we provide services to men and their families like our helpline, one-to-one support and information leaflets. It’s why we’re leading the way in providing prostate education to medical professionals. It’s why we don’t take no for an answer when it comes to fighting our campaigns. We are Prostate Cancer UK.
