The Great North Run
The world famous Great North Run will be back in September 2024.
The Great North Run is the biggest Half Marathon event in the world, with over 60,000 runners participating in this must-do event. Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, runners pass over the iconic Tyne Bridge (with a flypast by the Red Arrows) and on to the finish line some 13.1 miles later in the coastal town of South Shields.
This is one of the few UK running events to be shown on the BBC, and so gives us an amazing opportunity to highlight our services and the support we can offer.
Our amazing team of runners participate both to raise funds to support our work and to increase awareness of our charity and the services we offer. In 2023 we managed to secure 25 charity places in this amazing event, and raised over £13,000!
We will be applying for charity places for 2024 as soon as we can, but in the meantime, if you would like to be considered for our small 2024 team, please do email us at email@example.com to register your interest, and if we successfully obtain places we will let you be the first to know how to apply.
We’ll support you throughout your training, fundraising, and event day with:
- a Miscarriage Association t-shirt or running vest
- advice on setting up an online fundraising page
- lots of fundraising hints and tips
- printed sponsorship forms / balloons / bunting, and anything else you might need!
All we have asked in the past is that successful applicants pay a £25 registration fee to secure their place, and commit to raising a minimum of £350. (2022 information – this may change)
If you are been lucky enough to secure a ballot place for this amazing race and would like to support the M.A., we’d love to hear from you! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like more information.
Please find application form below to register your interest – please note that we will not be in a position to offer places until January 2024.
