How do I secure a place?

Please register to secure your place in the Great North Run and experience an iconic event. Once you've registered we can send you a support pack with fundraising ideas and training advice.

Have your own place?
If you are lucky enough to be allocated a ballot entry, email the Events Team for your running vest and supporter pack. There is no fundraising target with your own running place, we just ask that you raise as much as you can. All sponsorship will help us fund pioneering research across the world into spinal cord injury and its life-changing effects.

What can you expect from us?

  • A dedicated fundraiser
  • Personalised fundraising support
  • A half marathon training guide
  • Regular team e-newsletters
  • A Spinal Research running vest or technical t-shirt
  • Not to mention heaps of encouragement, help and advice

Training support
We are pleased to be supported by GH Training, a service designed to help you train for the half marathon. Run by personal trainer Graeme Hilditch (author of our training guides), GH Training can help you achieve your half marathon goals.
