Take on the Great North Run

8th February 2018

Have you considered lacing up for the world’s largest half-marathon – the Great North Run – to help us beat this deadly disease?

Great North Run

We want anyone lucky enough to secure a place in the ballot to tread through Tyneside on Sunday 9 September for us, while those who fall through this net can grab one of our guaranteed Golden Bond places.

We provide full support for the 13.1 mile challenge. Our runners receive a free running vest, a handy information pack with tips on how to prepare and an invite to our post-race reception with refreshments and complimentary sports massage.

Fight meningitis with every stride

By running for us you’ll be helping to fight meningitis with every stride and move us one step closer to our vision of a future where no one in the UK dies from meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need. 

Last year our runners collectively raised a fantastic £34,635.41 – we are so proud of you all for taking on this tough yet rewarding challenge. This year we’d like to do even better.

To find out more and sign up email our Events Fundraiser Michaela at michaelai@meningitisnow.org or call on 01453 768 000.
