Come and support our fabulous Great North Run runners!

We are very proud that we have seven amazing runners training hard for the Great North Run in Newcastle this year, all in aid of TOFS. Our sincere thanks to them all. We congratulate them all for continuing to train in our heatwave which can't be easy for them.

Join us to cheer on our amazing running heroes on 9 September and enjoy the best half marathon atmosphere in the world! No experience necessary, just lots of enthusiasm, and together we can make the TOFS stand a noisy spectacle.

Cheerleading Point

We plan to be standing on the LEFT hand side of the LEFT hand carriageway at just after 4 miles from the start. [Runners: keep left!] Our exact spot will be confirmed on the day, but will be shortly after the junction with the A185 near Heworth Metro Station. We'll be there from 10am.

We will have large sail flags, TOFS banners, balloons, etc., and jellybabies for our hard working runners!  



Toilets are available at Heworth Metro Station and there are pubs nearby. 

Please come and support our runners

Please let us know, as soon as possible, if you know or anybody you know would like to join us, and we will send you the ‘on-the-day’ contact number and any last-minute updates.

Please email

Many thanks.
