Great North Run charity places
Take on the iconic Great North Run as part of RSPCA Team Animal! We'll be there to cheer you round the course on event day with our themed cheer station. By raising money for the RSPCA you'll be helping us create a world that's kinder to animals.
We have a limited number of Great North Run places available. We would love you to join us as part of Team Animal and raise the vital funds needed to help more animals. There's a minimum fundraising target of £350, we'll be on hand to support you with ideas and resources to make your fundraising easy and fun! The money raised from this event will help us rescue, rehabilitate and rehome or release more animals when they need us most.
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.
