Now's your chance to be part of the SpecialEffect running team for the world’s biggest half marathon, the Simplyhealth Great North Run! Returning for in 2020, we have ONLY 10 places up for grabs, so don't delay!
The annual spectacular, which this year will be staged for the 40th time, will take place on Sunday 13th September. 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. From there runners will travel through Gateshead while being entertained by our Bands on the Run.
The route, lined by thousands of supporters, 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. 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 line.
