Welcome to The Percy Hedley Simplyhealth Great North Run 2021 Event Page

The Great North Run is the largest and most iconic half marathon in the world, taking place annually each September.  Participants run the 13.1 miles from Newcastle City Centre to South Shields, cheered on by the fantastic North East crowds lining the route along the way.  Sadly, due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Great North Run 2020 was cancelled but we're hoping it will be back, bigger and better than ever in 2021. 

Do you have what it takes to sign up and raise money for The Percy Hedley Foundation?  

We'd love to have you on our team!!

Entry cost is £58.00 and all we ask is that you pledge to raise £300 minimum sponsorship.  Our dedicated fundraising team will be on hand to support you every step of the way.

Our vision is 'Inspire, Believe, Achieve' and our amazing #TeamPercyHedley runners will do just that when they take on this amazing challenge in 2021 and raise thousands to help support us, to change the lives of disabled children, young people and adults across the North East.

For over 65 years, Percy Hedley has been the leading expert in giving care, education and support to disabled people across the region, and with your help we can continue to transform lives in the future.

 It's been too long since we saw the high-fiving celebrations with friends and family, well-earned medals being worn with pride and beaming smiles on faces.

 We can't wait to see you all again!
