Great North Run

Run with Team Unicef and help keep children safe

Home > Half marathons > Great North Run

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. A huge number of runners will run for charity, making this a really well-supported charity run. Why not fly the flag for Team Unicef?

Why run with Team Unicef?

Your fundraising through the Great North Run can make a huge difference for children. With your support, Unicef can protect millions of vulnerable children around the world. Did you know that £400 in sponsorship could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 17 malnourished children back to health?
