The Great North Run

The Great North Run sees thousands of runners take on the half marathon challenge every year. Starting in Newcastle, the course runs for 13.1 miles across the iconic Tyne Bridge, right out towards the coast in South Shields. Every year over one million people are cheered on from the side lines all the way to cross the finish line in South Shields.  This run is definitely not to be missed, and you can choose who you fundraise for from a varied selection. 

The charity places available to DUCK are in the process of being finalised, but in the meantime you can specify the type of charity you would want to fundraise for and we will do our best to accommodate that. The registration fee is likely to be in the region of £25-£40 and the fundraising target between £300 and £400.

NOTE you must be a DUCK member to sign up to this event. Simply find DUCK on the DSU website and sign up for free - it takes thirty seconds, if that!
