Great North Run

2020 Great North Run places

You can beat the ballot by signing up now to run the Great North Run on 13th September 2020, for St Oswald’s. It’s the 40th anniversary year of this iconic half marathon, so the perfect reason to get involved, whether you are a first timer or a GNR veteran. We’d love to welcome you to our friendly team.

As part of our team, you’ll also receive a very stylish St Oswald’s official running vest, to show your support on the day. And of course, you’ll receive an invite to the best tent in the charity village after the run. Our tent is always packed full of the friendliest volunteers, tastiest treats and the best sports massages. We’ll be on hand to give you the heroes welcome you deserve after your 13.1 miles, and your friends and family are welcome to join the party too.




Make your run makes a difference

By purchasing a place to run the Great North Run with St Oswald's you are committing to raise a minimum of £300 towards the work of the Hospice... but don't worry, that's equivalent to just £5.77 per week! You'll receive a running vest, fundraising pack and our fundraising team will help you every step of the way.

We set all of our runners a minimum fundraising commitment of £300 each, and all the money you’ll raise will directly support the work we do with local families at a difficult time. Your sponsorship and donations could provide fun and engaging trips out for the children who come to us for short breaks, vital medical equipment in our Inpatient Unit or fund bereavement support sessions for someone after the death of a loved one.

We rely on events like the Great North Run and amazing people like you to help us continue to be there for the families that need us. Thank you.

My Health Clinic Managing Director, Rob Boyce said:

It’s fantastic to be able to support St Oswald’s Hospice in this way, as I have been a supporter of the charity as an individual for many years. 


When the opportunity came up for My Health Clinic to sponsor the hospice’s Great North Run team, we jumped at the chance. As we have a foot clinic as part of our brand which aligns perfectly with the Great North Run, it just seemed such a natural fit.


We’ve been based in our Gosforth clinic for around 16 months now and think that throwing our support behind St Oswald’s is a great way to connect with the local community, while making a real difference.
