Great South Run 2024 

I have my own place … 

As an own place runner, you’ll get the same support from our dedicated events team as those with a charity place … and you can set your own fundraising target! Whether this will be your first marathon, or you’re a seasoned pro, we’d love for you to join us! If you would like to make a real difference then look no further than WheelPower.

Experience the world’s biggest half marathon, take in the iconic landmarks and feel energised by the electric atmosphere as you run through the streets of Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields. With your support, you will be helping WheelPower to provide opportunities for disabled people to lead active lives throughout the UK.

Please note: You will need to pay a registration fee and commit to raising £250 in sponsorship.

Over 57,000 determined and dedicated runners make the Great North Run the World’s biggest and best half marathon – famous for its warm North East welcome, unbeatable atmosphere and the millions raised for good causes.
