Only two places left to take part in the Great North Run in support of the BDA. To secure your place in the world's greatest half marathon and create incredible memories email

Date: 10 September 2017 - Newcastle

Sign up for a place to take part in the iconic Great North Run for the British Dyslexia Association (BDA).

Known as the world’s greatest half marathon, the Great North Run starts in Newcastle upon Tyne. The 13.1 mile route takes runners through the city centre towards the River Tyne to cross over the iconic Tyne Bridge, where if you're lucky, you might get a glimpse of the Red Arrows passing overhead.

From there runners will travel through Gateshead, being entertained by many bands along the way. The route, lined by thousands of supporters, leads runners to South Shields where there is a fantastic view of the sea at the top of Prince Edward Road.

It's a welcome sight as from there you've only got a mile to go. Crowds line the streets to make sure runners are cheered on as they make their way down the final straight to the finish line.

It's a great event and an impressive achievement.

The fundraising target we have set for our runners is £400 minimum sponsorship.
