It’s the world’s favourite half marathon, it’s a hit with celebrities and sports stars alike. So don't miss out taking part on Sunday 12th, September, 2021.

Here is your chance to join the 56,000 runners taking part in the 13.1 mile iconic run stretching from Newcastle, along the coast finishing at South Shields.

The distance may seem daunting, but the carnival atmosphere on the day more than makes up for it. You don’t need to be the next future olympian to enter – but you will need to be someone who loves a challenge and to make memories. I mean, you won't find many runs where Mo Farrah, a smurf or a rhino can tackle the same course.


How to sign up

With so many runners rolling their 2020 places over to 2021, available places are very limited. Make sure to snap yours up now!

Ballot Places

Due to the popularity of the rollover option for 2020 GNR entrants, the 2021 event is already at capacity so there will not be a general ballot as is usually the case. Instead, all runners who wish to participate can still join us on the start line by claiming a charity entry. 

Charity Places

As we decided to roll over our places to 2021, we will receive 35 new ‘available’ tokens to send to all of our runners who wish to roll over and for any other new runners. The new tokens will be available from Tuesday 26th January. 

We still do have a few limited charity places still available, so don't miss out!

Charity places cost £50 each, and runners are asked to try to raise an ambitious £400 each – a tenner for each year the Society has been there to support North-East families (but a registration fee of £50 would be returned if runners raise over £1000).


Time to train!

Whether you are a seasoned runner or are using this as your ‘new year new you’ challenge, we want to support you. We will be sending you regular help and training to get you moving in the right direction ahead of the race itself.

You will also receive a fundraising pack, including lots of hints and tips with training and nutrition advice, and a FREE running vest. 

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in touch via email or by phone on 0191 4109974.
