Great North Run 2023

The Great North Run is one of the most popular half marathons around, with tens of thousands of runners stepping up to the line each year and probably the same amount stepping up to the spectator cheering line too.

The 13.1 mile length takes runners (and walkers!) from Newcastle, across the Tyne Bridge, through Gateshead, and onto a coastal finish in South Shields. The electric atmosphere is undoubtedly something everyone should experience at least once, right? That's why we're here to tell you how you can run the 2023 Great North Run and transform young lives with The Key.

As a charity, we've got spaces available for you to run, walk, skip or hop to the finish line, and we've got two opportunities for you to secure your space.

The money you raise will empower young people from the North East facing challenging circumstances to believe in themselves and realise they can achieve anything. 

As one of our #GNR23Heroes, you'll receive:

  • A snazzy branded running vest
  • A full fundraising pack
  • Continued support from our lovely fundraising team!

Secure your space today! You can rest assured that your hard work will give young people in need the opportunity to use their voices, lead activities that matter, build essential skills and confidence, and become active in their community.
