2019 ballot entry
The ballot is now open for the Simplyhealth Great North Run. Sign up and select Breast Cancer Now as your chosen charity.
You’ll get to take in the sights of Newcastle, run across the iconic Tyne Bridge and finish on the coast in South Shields, in what is the world’s biggest half marathon.
Whether you’re looking to beat a personal best, or just cross the finish line, every stride you make will help fund life-saving research. And we’ll support you every step of the way.
Join Team Now
You’ll not only get your very own Breast Cancer Now technical running vest, but access to our online Training Zone, the complete support of our experienced Challenge Events team and a fundraising pack with everything you’ll need to raise money.
You’ll also get an invitation to join our exclusive running team Facebook group, so you can chat to your fellow runners.
And you won’t be on your own on the day either. We’ll be there to scream, shout and cheer you on during the run and provide cheer sticks for your friends and family too, so they can do the same.
