Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just starting out, the Great North Run is a fantastic challenge to set yourself knowing that every single step you take will make a difference for children with half a working heart.

Starting in Newcastle, you’ll run through Gateshead (watch out for the Red Arrows flying overhead!), and then past thousands of supporters as you enter South Shields before having a beautiful view of the sea as you undertake your final charge to the finish line.

LHM Charity Places

Our guaranteed charity places in the Great North Run have a £30 registration fee and a £300 minimum sponsorship target.

Run for LHM and we will:

  • Provide you with your very own LHM running vest
  • Assist you with your training
  • Help you smash your fundraising target (£300)
  • Meet you after the race to congratulate you in person!

LHM charity places are now FULL.

Already have your own place?

If you’ve already bought your own place directly through the Great North Run organisers, we’d still love to have you as part of our team! There is no sponsorship target for own place runners – just raise as much as you can. Let us know that you’ve signed up and we’ll send you a running vest and fundraising pack.
