Apply for a charity place

We’re delighted to announce that we have four charity places for the famous Great North Run, the world’s largest half-marathon event. The event takes place on 11 September 2022, in Newcastle Upon Tyne. 

All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £350 for Willen Hospice, and we’ll help you all the way, with buckets, balloons, banners and publicity.

If you’d like to apply for a place email challenges@willen-hospice.org.uk, and double your chances by entering the ballot in January.
