Broadcast live on the BBC, the Simplyhealth Great North Run, on Sunday 8 September, sees thousands of runners take on the half marathon challenge every year. Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile course is lined with supporters all the way from the iconic Tyne Bridge, right out towards the stunning coastline in South Shields. Since 1981 the world's greatest half marathon has welcomed over one million people across the finish line in South Shields and we're looking forward to cheering on the next million. 

WheelPower have a limited number of charity places in this prestigious race which begins in Newcastle and finishes in South Shields totalling 13.1 miles.

As this is a charity place, we are asking runners to raise £250 to help us make changes to the lives of those with disabilities. We hope to raise over £5,000 from our team of runners so that we can continue to provide the 1st class facilities and support that disabled people deserve.
