Get your Great North Run charity place with Scope and join 55,000 runners, celebrities and athletes in the the world's biggest half marathon.

The 13-mile route takes you from Newcastle city centre, over the Tyne Bridge and out towards the coastal town of South Shields where you can relax at our charity village with friends, family and your Scope teammates.

Join Team Scope and you'll get:

  • Expert fundraising and training support from our dedicated events team.

  • An exclusive Scope running vest.

  • A celebratory welcome with refreshments at the charity village.

  • A well-deserved sports massage.

I am so pleased to have been able to take part in the run and support your charity. Thank you so much. The cup of tea and the massage were particularly necessary and appreciated!
