Great North Run 2023

The World’s Biggest and Best Half Marathon

For over 42 years, Newcastle upon Tyne has been the home of the Great North Run. The Great North Run is the world’s biggest and best half marathon with an unbeatable atmosphere and a course that takes in the iconic Tyne Bridge and finishes in the coastal town of South Shields.

We have 20 places altogether this year. If you are interested and keen to run on behalf of FareShare North East, please email [email protected] to find out more and details on how to sign up.

“Being from South Shields, it feels like a rite of passage to complete the Great North Run. I finally took the plunge in 2022 and what better way to do it, than fundraising for a local charity in FareShare North East, who play such an important role in the local community. While it was a tough day, it was also loads of fun and super rewarding. FareShare North East was very supportive along the way and I’m hoping to continue fundraising for them at future events!”
Jack, 2022 runner
