Why choose the 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 run it for 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 £500 in sponsorship could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 22 malnourished children back to health?
Got your own place?
If you’ve already got your own place in the Great North Run, we’d love for you to fundraise for us. There is no minimum fundraising commitment; we would only ask you to raise what you can.
