Great North Run image

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!
