About the event

Join us for the world's biggest half marathon at the Great North Run 2019! 

The electrifying atmosphere of this event is what makes it so special. Starting in Newcastle, the course takes in the iconic Tyne Bridge, goes through Gateshead passing the famous international athletics stadium, and finishes in the coastal town of South Shields. 

All of our runners are provided with a training and fundraising pack, a Meningitis Research Foundation running vest, and a dedicated staff member at the charity who will support you along every step of your journey - right up to the finish line!

There is no cost to register for this event. With support available from our fundraising team, we instead ask you to pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £325

By becoming part of our team you will be helping to bring a world free from meningitis and septicaemia a step closer. Your contribution will enable us to fund research into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, provide life-saving awareness information and support people who have lost a loved one or are coping with after effects.

"Choosing to run for team MRF has been amazing! The support is just incredible and it is so good to run for a charity where everyone is important." - Hayley Brewster
