We have secured guaranteed charity places for the 2019 Great North Run, so would love you to join Team Sandcastle for this event!  Please email us at info@sandcastletrust.org to register your interest.

The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world and will take place for the 39th time on Sunday, 8 September 2019. Participants run through Newcastle city centre, over the iconic Tyne Bridge, then wind through Gateshead, cheered on by tens of thousands of supporters finally crossing the finish line by the beautiful South Shields coastline.

Check out the highlights of last year’s event in this video:



Do you have your own place in The Great North Run 2019?

If you have been lucky enough to secure your own place in The Great North Run in the public ballot we’d love you to come on board as a Sandcastle Trust runner and join our team! We’ll provide you with lots of support and a branded Sandcastle Trust running vest or T-shirt to wear with pride on the day.  This requires no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can to help us support families affected by a rare genetic condition.
