Great North Run


The 2018 Great North Run takes place on Sunday 9th September 2018 and the general ballot has now closed. However, we are excited to announce that we have very limited last minute places available to run as part of Team St Oswald's!

If you want to join our amazing team of over 500 runners and experience the fantastic atmosphere of the world's most famous half marathon, get in touch and secure your place right now! 

Please contact us on 0191 246 9123 or email fundraising@stoswaldsuk.org to secure your place now!

We can only take entries up to Monday 1st July.


Places cost £54 and we ask that runners aim to raise £300 towards our work with adults, young people, children and babies with incurable conditions. 

You'll receive a running vest, fundraising pack and support throughout from our fundraising team. And of course, our team will be there at the finish line with high fives, sports massages from professionals, as many sweets and drinks as you can manage and a true hero's welcome.

And if you already have a place and are looking for a charity to run for, we would love you to join our team. You'll receive all of the above benefits and will be helping to make a real different to the local people and families we support.


The Simply Health Great North Run is the second largest half marathon in the world, with over 50,000 runners each year. The 13.1 mile race takes runners from the centre of Newcastle to the coast at South Shields.

In 2017, over 300 amazing people took on the challenge and raised over £100,000 for St Oswald's. Thank you so much to each and every person who made up Team St Oswalds!
