The North East’s landmark event is back, as the Great North Run returns to the glorious streets of Newcastle on Sunday 11 September. Experience that epic South Shields finish line celebration with us, as we return to the iconic city to sea course in 2022.

Feel the region come alive when the Great North Run comes to town and soak up the big event experience by taking on the world’s biggest half marathon. Suffolk Mind is inviting supporters to be a part of this iconic event by applying for one of our exclusive charity places and running to raise funds to help support the services we provide across the county.

Starting in the heart of the city, enjoy a running route of the city and out to the coastal town of South Shields as you cross over the notorious Tyne Bridge and past Gateshead International Stadium towards that unforgettable finish line feeling and post-race fish and chips.

The greatest reward in taking part is the sense of achievement as you cross the finish line, but a shiny new medal, a snazzy finishers t-shirt and a finisher’s bag filled with goodies will await you at the end of the run.

It’s a run for everyone, of all ages and abilities, whether it’s your first event or your 50th. It’s an inclusive celebration
of running, with music blazing, crowds buzzing, legs pumping and fists bumping!

To apply for one or our limited free places all you need to do is pledge to raise £350 and complete our application form by midnight Sunday 3rd April 2022. Successful applications are then selected by a Suffolk Mind panel.

For more information about this event please visit the Great North Run website.

Thank you for your ongoing support and helping us to make Suffolk the best place in the world to talk about and take care of mental health.
