Great North Run

Do you want to take part in the world's most popular half marathon and raise money for disadvantaged North-East children?

Newcastle United Foundation has a limited number of free places in the Bupa Great North Run on 16th September 2012. You could be one of 52,000 runners who make the 13.1 mile journey from Newcastle to South Shields. You could also help the Foundation change the lives of 26,000 children and young people a year through football.

To secure a place we ask our runners to raise a minimum of £300 in sponsorship. In return the Foundation will pay your £46 entry fee and support you from the moment you sign up to the moment you cross the finish line.

You will get a black and white vest to wear on the day to make sure you stand out plus a pack full of tips to help you raise your sponsorship and put together your training plan, including exclusive advice from Newcastle United fitness coaches. There is also the chance to win Newcastle United prizes along the way if you reach your sponsorship target.

With demand for our places high, request an application pack today by emailing foundation@nufc.co.uk or calling 0844 372 1892 x 8451.

Newcastle United Foundation is an independent and registered charity, supported by Newcastle United Football Club. It aims to use the local passion for football to encourage learning and promote healthy lifestyles that will make a real difference to the lives of children, young people and families in our region.
