Join our Great North Run team
2020 will see the fortieth Great North Run! This event has grown to become one of the most popular half marathons in the world. Starting in Newcastle the route travels across the iconic Tyne Bridge before finishing in the beautiful coastal town of South Shields. Don't miss out on an electrifying atmosphere!
The ballot for the Great North Run is open from the beginning of January for one month and you can enter online. If you're lucky enough to secure your own place in the Great North Run, we'd love for you to join our team. There's no fundraising target, we just ask that you raise as much as you can, and you still get all the great Team Animal benefits.
Join with your own place
If you already have your own place in the Great North Run we would love you to join Team Animal and make your running count for more than just a personal best. You can set your own fundraising target and we'll be on hand to help you every step of the way.
