Event Date: 9th September

The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world, taking place annually in North East England each September. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000 m bronze medallist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.

First staged in 1981, this annual UK half marathon is now officially the biggest in the world. More than one million competitors have taken part, including Great Britain’s greatest ever distance runner, four-time Olympic, World and European champion Sir Mo Farah, who has won the Great North Run a record four times.

Fundraising Tips

Stuck for ideas on how to fundraise? Firstly, it’s wise to break your fundraising target down into manageable chunks. Plan local events such as pub quizzes, car boot sales or company cake days and be sure to create your own personal web page on JustGiving.  Social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter can also generate awareness.
