The Great North Run

We are happy to announce that we have five representatives running in this year’s GNR. The event is held on Sunday the 8th of September in Newcastle and will involve thousands of people looking to generate money for charities and great causes throughout the region.

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 3.1 mile route takes runners through the city center, towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse at the red arrows passing overhead.  From there, runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained by our bands on the run. The route, lined with thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields, where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course. From that point there, it is just over a mile to go and the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish line.

Our volunteers are each aiming to raise £250 to support the costs of preventing homelessness among young people within the region. Without your support and donations, this is not possible, so please donate whatever you can to help.
