The Great North Run is the most famous half marathon in the world and in 2019 you could be running over the iconic Tyne Bridge live on TV as part of Team LHM!

Note: LHM charity places for the GNR 2019 are now FULL!

Date:

Sunday 8th September 2019

Location:

Newcastle-upon-Tyne

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.

    Every child with a single ventricle heart condition should have a Health Care Plan in place in school. It is a statutory requirement. The plan sets out all the ways to monitor and respond to your individual children’s needs. Health Care Plan, HCP’s, can be put in place from the age of 0 to 24 years old. Each Local education authority will have their own plan but they will all cover the same information. For more information on what to include in the plan follow the link www.lhm.org.uk/information/lifestyle-information/education/health-care-plans-for-children-and-you... ... See MoreSee Less

    Stuck for a Mothering Sunday present? Lucy Houle is giving 10 per cent of all sales of this gorgeous Cobblestone with Hot Pink Handles Medium Tote Bag to Little Hearts Matter! bit.ly/2Tpyo76
    Lucy has made this commitment due to her close friendship with Fiona Pollard and Lucia. Lucy explained,

    "I think Fiona and Lucia Pollard are a rather special Mummy and Daughter team.
    Lucia was born with a rare defect that means she has half a heart and the condition is life limiting and can't be cured. At only 5 years old she's already had several open heart surgery procedures to improve her health.
    I often see them in the playground and at ballet where Lucia is every bit the typical little girl but her smiles hide the very real day-to-day struggles that the family face. Thankfully, they get brilliant support from Little Hearts Matter; the only UK charity that supports this rare condition.
    And we want to support them too, so 10% of each sale of our new bags will go to Little Hearts Matter to help them continue to support children like Lucia."
