About the event

 The electrifying atmosphere of this half marathon is what makes it such a special event. 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, and a Meningitis Research Foundation running vest. With support available from our fundraising team, we 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.

If you have already secured your own place in the public ballot you can join our team today – there’s no entry fee and no minimum sponsorship.
