The world’s biggest half marathon is expected to return in 2021! This really is a running event you need to experience at least once in your life –  the run across the Tyne bridge, the famous Red Arrows flypast, and the stunning sea views at the finish are memories you’ll treasure forever, with chants of ‘oggy oggy oggy’ echoing in your ears long after you’ve left the tunnels!

How to get involved:

As the 2020 event was cancelled, places for 2021 are like gold dust – however we do still have a couple available, if you want one you better get registered quickly! To apply for one of our places, please complete the registration form below. If successful charity places cost £50 plus a minimum sponsorship target of £350.
