Simplyhealth Great North Run 2020


Sunday 13 September 2020


The Great North Run is a closed road half marathon taking place on the 13th September 2020 through the streets of Newcastle. It is one of the UKs biggest half marathons where you will get to run over Tyne Bridge and see the red arrows fly over!

We would love for your to join our Maggie's team. You can sign up below with a charity place for a guaranteed entry to the race. If you get a place in the official Great North Run ballot, fill in our ballot registration form and we will be in touch to welcome you to the team.

How your money helps

Your support means so much to the people affected by cancer who come to our Centres each day. It costs £590,000 a year to keep a Maggie's Centre open, and the money you raise will help your Maggie's Centre continue to provide emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends.
