Whether you take on the Great North Run as a tribute to someone special or as a personal challenge, this is your chance to be part of something really special and make 2020 a year to remember, while supporting your local hospice service.

Hurry, places are limited!


The Simplyhealth Great North Run welcomes 57,000 runners, plodders, sprinters, walkers and plenty of fancy dress outfits, to the start line in Newcastle upon Tyne every year. This year is sure to be something really special, celebrating 40 years of fitness and fundraising. From the start line in the city centre, the 13.1 mile route takes runners across the iconic Tyne Bridge and past thousands of cheering crowds in Gateshead before heading out towards South Shields and the coast. With musical entertainment, charity cheer points and plenty of local support, this half marathon is definitely one to tick off your to-do list!

We'll be inviting applications for our places this year, due to limited numbers. Simply contact us on the form below and we'll be in touch as soon as possible with your application form.

When you sign up with Herriot Hospice Homecare, you'll receive an exclusive running vest, plus the motivation of knowing that every pound you raise in sponsorship will help local families living with terminal illness and bereavement.
