Great North Run

9 September 2018

We have places available in the Great North Run 2018!

Would you like to be part of the world's largest half marathon? Starting in the centre of Newcastle and winding 13.1 miles to the finish in South Shields this iconic run is a must on the running calendar.

You can apply for one of Cardiomyopathy UK's guaranteed places, and you can enter the ballot directly with the race to try and get your own place. If you take one of our places we ask that you fundraise a minimum of £375, if you do get your own place you can still run for #teamcardio and simply raise as much as you can.

The ballot will open in 2018 but you can register for a reminder service (opens in a new window) with the race organisers so you don't miss out.

If you  are lucky enough to have your own place in this iconic half marathon we would love you to be part of #teamcardio so please do get in touch!

As part of our fantastic #teamcardio runners you'll receive:

  • A Cardiomyopathy UK running vest
  • A full fundraising pack, with sponsorship forms, hints and tips, posters, as well as all the help and support you'll need from the Cardiomyopathy UK fundraising team
  • Very vocal support on the day!
