About the event

Are you ready to take on the biggest half marathon in not only the UK, but the World?! With over 57,000 runners and thousands of supporters on the side-lines every year, this incredible half marathon is certainly one to tick off the bucket list. 

Starting in Newcastle upon Tyne, the 13.1 mile route takes you past Newcastle city centre, across Tyne Bridge and through Gateshead before finishing in South Shields where you can enjoy the finishers' festival by the sea. You'll be entertained on route by amazing bands, witness the incredible sea view and let's not forget you might even catch a glimpse of the Red Arrows!

I have ran before for Scope and I must say they are one of the best charities for supporting their runners, thank you.

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.
