Join us for the epic Great North Run
This iconic event is recognised as one of the world’s best half marathons, so why not don your running shoes and join us at the start line? The atmospheric route starts in Newcastle city centre, with runners crossing the famous Tyne Bridge before heading through Gateshead and to the finish line in South Shields.
We have a limited number of charity places available. To apply to join our Curestarter team, please complete our online form.
If you have your own place and would like to raise funds for us, we would love to hear from you.
Why run with us?
Despite years of ground-breaking and progressive research, cancer remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide, with 1 in 2 of us receiving a diagnosis in our lifetime. We urgently need to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer - but we can't do it alone.
With your help, we vow to keep funding more lifesaving research projects into any type of cancer, anywhere in the world. We won’t stop until cancer does.
You'll be part of a team of Worldwide Cancer Research runners, taking part in the iconic event and helping to start new cancer cures.
