Great North Run 2020

Date: Sunday 13 September 2020
Start Time: 09:00:00
Location: Newcastle Upon Tyne

Join the half marathon’s 40th anniversary celebrations and run in aid of Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw.


The hospice is delighted to announce we have received a limited number of guaranteed charity places for the 2020 Great North Run. Plus, for the very first time we will be part of the Charity Village in the shared marquee area at the end of the 13.1mile challenge.

“I would say to anyone, ‘never say never.’ With effort and determination it can be done. Plenty of people walk/run it. And the emotional feeling that you get when you cross that finish line is totally amazing. If I can turn myself into a runner at 68 year’s old, so can anyone!” Jenny Pike, Eden Valley Hospice Great North Run Fundraiser 2019.
