Are you ready to take on the world's biggest half marathon? With nearly 60,000 runners and thousands of supporters on the side-lines, the Great North Run is certainly one to tick off the bucket list.

2020 marks the 40th anniversary of this incredible half marathon. Sign up today to get your place on the starting line with Team Scope

Your Great North Run experience

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 13.1 mile route leads you through the city centre towards the River Tyne where you'll cross the iconic Tyne Bridge. As you run through Gateshead, you'll be entertained by bands and thousands of supporters lining the route. 

The final stretch through South Shields treats you with the welcoming sight of the sea. In just over a mile, you'll cross the finish line a half marathon hero where you can celebrate with family and friends in the charity village. 

Unbelievably fun! There's no other charity I'd run 13 miles for!

The difference you can make

By signing up to the Great North Run with Scope, you'll be raising vital funds to help us end inequality for disabled people.

We know that nearly half of disabled people feel excluded from society. Scope works tirelessly to campaign for change so that disabled people and their families can enjoy equality and fairness in their everyday lives.

£65 could pay for one week of support for a disabled person to access our Starting Line service; a pre-employment training programme for disabled people at the start of their journey into work.

£280 could enable a disabled volunteer to inspire 40 school students to be positive about disability at a Role Models session.

£450 could cover the cost of 50 phone calls to the Scope helpline, providing free, independent and impartial advice and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.
