Come and cheer on our Great North runners!

With less than 30 days until the Bupa Great North Run, we're all very excited here in the events team.

The 13.1-mile run on Sunday 7 September starts in Newcastle upon Tyne and finishes in South Shields. We'll have a great post-race reception waiting for our amazing team of 63 runners.

This will be the 33rd Great North Run and we hope it will be the best yet for our team, which includes runners from many of our care homes. There'll also be a team of 30 runners from Howdens Joinery who are raising funds for a new garden at Beechwood.

We’ll have a dedicated cheering point at the 9.5-mile mark, where John Reid Road and Boldon Lane cross (a short walk from the Tyne Dock metro).

We would love to have as many people as possible cheering for our runners, so if you'd like to join us at our cheering point, please get in touch.
