About the event

With over 50,000 runners a year, it has become the noisiest, and most unforgettable half marathon in the world – and we’d love you to join #TeamBarnardos and take on this exciting event in support of vulnerable children in the UK. Join us in September 2022 for the Great North Run! Please note, the date for the 2022 event is still to be confirmed, and we will update this once the date has been officially announced by the race organisers.
