Great North Run


The ballot results have been announced! Please check your emails to find out if you were one of the lucky ones. Congratulations to all who got through.


The 2018 Great North Run takes place on Sunday 9th September 2018. Weve already filled all of our own places and have hundreds of supporters signed up to run as part of #TeamStOswalds. 

If you have been lucky enough to secure a place through the ballot and are looking for a charity to run in support of, we would love to welcome you to our team. 

If you choose to run in support of St Oswald's Hospice, you'll receive a running vest, fundraising pack and support throughout from our fundraising team. And of course, our team will be there at the finsh line with high fives, sports massages from professionals, as many sweets and drinks as you can manage and a true hero's welcome.

Please contact us on 0191 246 9123 or email fundraising@stoswaldsuk.org if you have your own place and would like to join our team.


The Simply Health Great North Run is the second largest half marathon in the world, with over 50,000 runners each year. The 13.1 mile race takes runners from the centre of Newcastle to the coast at South Shields.

In 2017, over 300 amazing people took on the challenge and raised over £100,000 for St Oswald's. Thank you so much to each and every person who made up Team St Oswalds!
