Simplyhealth Great North Run

Join our team and take part in one of the UK's biggest half marathons in Newcastle on 8th September 2019.



Action for Children has guaranteed places in the 2019 Great North Run. If you are lucky enough to get a place in the official Great North Run 2019 ballot and you would like to raise money to help the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people, why not join our team of running stars?

Your local fundraiser will support you every step of the way by providing helpful fundraising ideas and advice.  We'll provide you with a technical Action for Children running vest and you’ll have access to our finishers' marquee in the charity village on the big day, where you can come for a well-earned leg massage and cuppa.
