Great North Run

08 Sep 2019

Broadcast live on the BBC, the Simplyhealth Great North Run, on Sunday 8 September 2019, sees thousands of runners take on the half marathon challenge every year. Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne the 13.1 mile course is lined with supporters all the way from the iconic Tyne Bridge, right out towards the stunning coastline in South Shields. Since 1981 the world's greatest half marathon has welcomed over one million people across the finish line in South Shields.

This is the big event of the year for Vasculitis UK: we are expecting to have over 20 runners taking part this year:
