Event description


The 2018 Great North Run will take place on Sunday 9 September. Join team brainstrust for the world famous 13.1 mile route, and help support people in the UK who are living with a brain tumour.

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned runner, the Great North Run is THE race to do. More than 50,000 runners return to the North East year after year for the amazing atmosphere and camaraderie.

Join team brainstrust today and you can be part of it too.

The Route

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne and over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.

You will then race through Gateshead, heading towards South Shields, while being cheered on by the thousands of supporters and bands lining the route.

Why take part?

By running with us, you'll be raising vital funds that will help support people living with a brain tumour to feel less afraid, less isolated and more in control.

How we spend the funds you raise

    Every new patient to get in touch is offered a brain box, free of charge. This essential support toolkit helps patients and carers feel less isolated and afraid and more in control.

  • £300 – could fund for one of our Meet Ups
    So that people can share information, find mutual support, say ‘hi’ and have some fun.
