The Great North Run is the biggest half marathon in the UK and the World with over 57000 runners taking part in the famous 13.1 mile UK half marathon. Join #TeamSands for its 40th anniversary in 2021.

Guaranteed charity places

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Great North Run, all runners have been transferred to the 2021 race. We therefore only had limited places available, which have now all been filled.

Ballot places

If you had a 2020 place and have recently decided you would like to run for #TeamSands in 2021, then it’s not too late. You can join #TeamSands using your own ballot place below:
