Don’t take a chance waiting to see if you are successful via the Great North Run ballot here at MFC Foundation we have guaranteed places available for the greatest half marathon in the world.
Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne where thousands of people will cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you’re lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead. From there runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained by numerous bands and entertainers and cheered on by the massive crowds. The route leads runners to South Shields where at the top of Prince Edward Road the view of the sea is one of the most welcoming sights along the whole course because you know you are nearly there! From that point there is just over a mile to go and the crowds get louder as runners make their way down the final straight towards the finish gantry. At the end of the run The MFC Foundation Fundraising Team will be at the finishing post to thank you for your much appreciated support.
The 2020 Simply Health 40th Great North Run will take place on Sunday 13th September
