The Great North Run is firmly established as the world's greatest half marathon. Crossing the Tyne Bridge and through the streets of Newcastle, the race is one which competitors really enjoy. 

Unfortunately, we do not have charity places available for 2024.           

Have you applied to get a ballot place? If so, we'd love for you to take part and fundraise for Alzheimer Scotland.

If you have got your own place already and would like to raise money for Alzheimer Scotland, let us know by phone on 0131 243 1453 or email [email protected] and we can send you a fundraising pack!
