Great North Run

Join our team in 2022 and take on the iconic Great North Run!

Zac Clayton

Date: Sunday 11 September 2022
Location: Newcastle
Distance: 13.1 Miles

57,000 determined and dedicated runners make the Great North Run the world’s biggest and best half marathon – famous for its warm North East welcome and unbeatable atmosphere. This year you could be part of it.

We will be with you every step of the way. Before the event we will be on hand for training and fundraising tips, you will receive your Brain & Spine running vest and your supporters t-shirts. You will be invited to a virtual pre-race event where you will meet your team mates, and have a chance to talk to our professional team of chartered physiotherapists, The Running Gods. On race weekend we will have our amazing volunteers on the pavements to cheer you on.

You will be running to ensure our vital services can continue to be there for people when they need it most. Together we can take on the 13.1 miles, together we can dramatically improve the quality of life, treatment and care for the one-in-six of us affected by a neurological condition, brain or spine injury.
