About the event

I would like a Tommy's place at the Great North Run 2021

You can register for a guaranteed Tommy's place when you pledge to raise a minimum of £300 (excl. gift aid). We would be thrilled to welcome you to #TeamTommys!

I have my own place in the Great North Run 2021

Let us know if you already have your own place and would like to run for Tommy's! Not only will you get a free running vest and all the fundraising materials you could wish for, but you'll receive the loudest cheers from our various cheer points on race day! This requires no minimum sponsorship — just raise as much as you can!

Whether you run with your own place, or a Tommy's guaranteed place, you'll get first class care!

The Great North Run is the world'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.

"I just wanted to thank you and the team at Tommy's for all of the support that you have provided. You have been really friendly and helpful; it was a real privilege to run for such a worthy cause. The Tommy's team in the crowd were amazing - a real boost when I needed it at the end. Please pass on my thanks to everyone at Tommy’s!"

— Alex Dulewicz

Ts & Cs
If offered a place, I pledge to raise the minimum sponsorship, which I will pay to the charity within one month of the event. The objective is to raise as much sponsorship as possible. I understand that the place I am offered has been purchased for me at the charity’s expense with the intention of generating a fundraising profit for Tommy’s and that if I take the place, the charity is unable to offer it to anybody else. I will inform Tommy’s immediately if I am unable to take part in the event or unable to meet the fundraising pledge.
