Great North Run Places Available

Should you wish to take on one of the friendliest, most popular challenges in the UK, we have five spaces available in the Great North Run this year. The event, which takes place in Newcastle/Gateshead on the 11th September this year, is second only to the London Marathon in terms of popularity. Last year, we had Lee and Steve run it for us, and Steve said this of the event;

I had a fantastic day and really enjoyed the whole weekend with my wife up in Newcastle... I think the pre-race meal of pizza and chips helped as I finished in a very respectable 5,514th place out of 57,000 in a time of 1hr 48mins 36 secs! Immediately after the race I had thoughts of maybe doing another but this morning’s aches confirm my running career is done... but what a way to finish... loved it!

If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in taking part in the event for us, email to secure your place or fill in the form below
