Great North Run

Join Team Newlife

The AJ Bell Great North Run is the world’s biggest half marathon, with 60,000 runners taking on the route from Newcastle to South Shields each year. It’s famous for its inclusive atmosphere, unbeatable on-route entertainment, and warm Geordie welcome. From the rush of the Red Arrows flying overhead to the oggy-oggy-oggy chants, Great North Run magic can be hard to understand – until you’ve experienced it for yourself.

You’re guaranteed a run like no other – and a finish line feeling you’ll never forget! Join us on 8th September 2024.

Rachel’s Story

Rachel ran for us as a way to say thank you for helping her family:

“I really enjoyed the experience of running and raising money for Newlife. Prior to the run I was a bit nervous but motivated by the fact that I was raising money for such a worthwhile cause. Newlife have been fantastic in providing us with much-needed equipment loans and support from their many services.”
