Great North Run 2024

8th September

Great North Run GNR 23

Run for TOFS in the 2024 Great North Run and help to make a difference in the lives of those born unable to swallow. 

60,000 determined and dedicated runners make the Great North Run the World’s biggest and best half marathon – famous for its warm North East welcome, unbeatable atmosphere and the millions raised for good causes.

Entry fee:

This fee goes towards the admin fees that the race organisers charge TOFS. 

Fundraising commitment:

This is the minimum amount (before Gift Aid) that we would expect a participant to raise. But you don’t have to stop there! Most of our previous Great North Run participants have raised a lot more!

Apply for your place!

We have a limited number of charity places available for those who wish to run in support of TOFS.

Final closing date for applications is the 15th October, 2023 however, we reserve the right to close this process early subject to the number of successful applicants. So please apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
