Great North Run image

I'd like to run with Sarcoma UK in 2017

Join #TeamSarcoma for the Great North Run on Sunday 10 September 2017.

Maybe it's your first half marathon or you fancy adding this route to your collection of runs; whatever your reason, you're ready, you're willing and you're taking a step in the right direction! 

We know there will be an inspiration behind setting yourself this challenge; a family member, a friend,  a colleague?  Or maybe you want to fulfil a personal goal that in turn supports the sarcoma community. For every step you take on this 13.1 mile challenge, you will be transforming the landscape for everyone affected by sarcoma. Cross the iconic Tyne Bridge, whizz past the live bands on your way to Gateshead, and catch a glimpse of the sea in South Shields. You (and over 57,000 runners) will be taking on the largest half marathon in the world, with thousands of others cheering you on!

Join the team

If you've been lucky in the Great North Run general ballot, we'd love to have you on #TeamSarcoma! You'll receive all the same support as our charity place runners, and can set your own fundraising target. Let our team know by emailing

Our charity place ballot has now closed. If you have applied for one of our places, we will be in touch in the coming days to let you know how you've got on.

Volunteer with us

You don't have to run to be part of #TeamSarcoma. Join us at the cheering stations as a volunteer? Our fundraising team would love to hear from you:
