Join thousands of runners at the world’s largest half marathon race! Broadcast live on the BBC, the race will see runners fill the streets of Newcastle for the 13.1-mile route.

With places always filling quickly, what better way to get involved than with Made By Sport and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust. We have free places available in this always sold out event, all that we ask is that you raise a minimum of £375.

All money you raise will go directly to us at the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, allowing us to support young people facing disadvantage through our athlete-led mentoring programmes across the North East region.


What is Made by Sport?

The Sport for Development Coalition is a growing movement of organisations who all believe in the power of sport and physical activity to act as effective tools for intervention when generating positive social outcomes. The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust is one of the founding members of this Coalition.

The Sport for Development Coalition work in partnership with Made By Sport – who have partnered with the Great North Run. Made By Sport is a campaign supporting charities and organisations who are changing lives through sport.

Over 130,000 young people are living in poverty in the North East. By joining the Made By Sport Great North Run team, you will be helping us use sport to build better futures for young people in the North East.
