Support us Fundraise Challenge events Great North Run From the very beginning, The Great North Run has been a celebration of what makes the North East great; thousands of supporters lining the course, hundreds of volunteers helping you along the way and runners like you, who embody dedication and determination. So come and join us on a 13.1 mile journey from Newcastle's city centre to the coast in South Shields. As part of Team Support Dogs you will receive a running vest to wear with pride on the day as well as full support with your fundraising. We ask our runners to raise a minimum of £350 + £25 registration fee (only payable when we offer you a place). Get in touch with us for our application form.
