The Great North Run is the worlds biggest half marathon, with more than 57,000 runners pounding the streets of Newcastle. It was also the first International Association of Athletics Federations event in the world to welcome its millionth finisher in 2014!
The 13.1 mile course starts in Newcastle, taking in the iconic Tyne Bridge and passing the famous international athletics stadium in Gateshead, before finishing in the coastal town of South Shields. Live bands and thousands of spectators ensure a fantastic atmosphere for those taking part.
You can also find out more about the run on the Great North Run website.
CRY welcomes own place runners, if you would like to take part or are interested in a CRY place and would like to be added to the waiting list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
