Starting in Newcastle Upon Tyne, the route will take you over the famous Tyne Bridge and towards the coast of South Shields.

The route it lined with support from thousands of people which created a fantastic atmosphere to be soaked up for the 13.1 miles around the city.

I want a charity place

Apply for a charity place

The non-refundable registration fee for a Battersea charity place is £30 (this is non-refundable and payable on confirmation of your place) and we ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £350.

The money you raise by taking part in the Great North Run goes towards the running of Battersea's centres.

I have my own place
