About the event

The Great North Run 2024

You can join us for the iconic Great North Run, the biggest half marathon in the UK. Imagine running the stunning city-to-sea course. Lap up the famous local support and see ‘that’ view as you reach the final mile. A day you'll remember forever – including the Red Arrows, lots of local positivity and fun. We'll be there, cheering you on, dancing and pumping out the music! And at the end, you can join us for that all-important cuppa and natter. We can't wait to see you there!

About the Great North Run

The Great North Run is the UK's largest half marathon, taking place annually in September. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields in the North East of England. The run was devised by former Olympic 10,000 m bronze medalist and BBC Sport commentator Brendan Foster.

Only the London Marathon comes close to attracting similar numbers of athletes each year.

It's famous for its amazing community support and incredible atmosphere. A real must-do event.

Tommy's helped me and my husband after our lives were turned upside down, when I gave birth to our sleeping angel James. Tommy's supported us over the coming weeks and months and, when we were very lucky to discover we were pregnant again, we looked at Tommy’s to support and ease our concerns. Knowing that Tommy’s is there for support and guidance is such a comfort.

This is why I am running the GNR. Every step I make James will be with me as he always is.

— Amanda, who ran the GNR on Team Tommy's in 2023
